Spring plantings and sunburn

Cool northerlies all day yesterday but mostly clear skies in the afternoon and evening. Got a nice dose of sunburn on my head after spending the afternoon in Cabinteely park with wife and delighted 1 year old. Great fun chasing the ducks around the pond was had. the sandpit in the childrens play area was a big hit too.

Planted out runner beans, mangetout, and dwarf french beans -“fire tongue”.

Courgette and and cucumber growing nicely in the greenhouse for the moment, too early to plant outside I think, planning on doing that in the last week or so of May.
