When I think we've had the last frost I will plant out all the beans, the black birds normally start laying when it's right to plant out.

We have been caught out several times by a very late frost, but the weather is pretty good after the last full moon after the beginning of May Day.

See the rings I made for the peas, we make paper blankets that go around the wire circles to keep the frost out.

Mr Mole is still about in the garden though, he is not throwing up any more hills but using the existing tunnels he made which can stop plants from growing properly. Where any roots grow down into the tunnels they always seen smaller that others plants that have uninterrupted soil depth.
