So very cold
We went to Brittany for the Easter weekend and at a market there I found some late spuds (I have found it impossible to get the Pink Fir APples I wanted so I have given up for this year), spring onion sets and some lettuce plug plants. Hopefully those will relieve the itchy fingers, with a bit of fleece! But it surely must warm up soon. I believe it has been one of the longest winters I have seen since living here. It is most disheartening.
Maddeningly I cannot find the name of the potato type I bought. I seem to think it started with an R (Revelle? something like that) - the farmer told me it was a later variety, yellow flesh (it seems to be a brown and not red skinned variety) that is quite firm and he said they were good keepers.... so I guess it will have to be a surprise. I bought a kilo and a half and there are a good few tubers there, at least 30 and he only charged me 3.75 euros which is a total bargain.
I shall pop down to the allotment tomorrow and see how all is progressing: I found some Aquadulce broad bean seeds, the last in the packet so I shall sow them and hope for the best.
