It was very pleasant out there as it is very sunny today, and the chilly wind (which is drying the soil at last) put me off being outside. So a lot was done but I didn't get cold!

Always a pleasure to get out and about even in Winter, when the sun shines!

I am also doing Stevia - for the first time. Have you done it before and was it a success?

First time for me too. And I was a bit disappointedto note from the envelope that it is only an annual.
Hope it is easy if I have to do it every year!!

Hopefully it will flower and we can save the seeds...

You have inspired me to get organised with seed planting, although I need to finish washing down the greenhouse glass first.

Do you have problems with blight over on the Island? Outside tomatoes were a disaster here last summer.

I did get blight on my outdoor tomatoes two years ago. But last year they were fine....

We have had blight on our plot for the last few years so all outdoor tomatoes died. It even managed to affect those in the plot greenhouse although we managed to control that by removing any affected leaves as they appeared.

The problem has arisen now all the plots on our site are taken as it was never an issue in the past and we seem to be OK in our garden at home

Blogging is a great way to record seasons of what you have planted and what grew well variety wise:)
