I popped down to the allotment to paint the ends of the cut timber with wood preservative. The sun came out and the temperature was 8.5 degrees and with no wind it was lovely. Once completed painting the ends of the timbers I noticed how weather beaten the shed was looking so I set about freshening it up, well on the front elevation
On returning home I looked at the onions that were sown on the 4th February and out of nowhere after 5 days there are seedlings!
