Phew! I'm worn out!

Phew! Finally got the onions and parsnips planted and most of the spuds.  It was beginning to look dodgy - one more wet week and I was going to abandon for this year.  Now the pressure's off,  I can start sowing the carrots, beetroots, chard etc.  Still loads of firewood to be cut up and stacked - never a dull moment!  Wish I had time for a nap Sleep

Sounds like you've earned a nap.
Nearly finished digging patch for onions here, hoping to get them in tomorrow.
Doesn't a bit of good weather make a big difference!

I got me onions and main crop spuds in at last. The beds were not really fit but they will do. Parsnips and carrots need better conditions so they may have to wait a bit. The poly`s looking productive now and in the next couple of days the Toms need to be planted, they are getting a bit leggy. Looks like we will get a half decent crop of Peaches after all, a surprise this is. I see bud break on a fare few apple trees Sean. Is it time to think about grafting Sean? Do you use proper grafting tape?

Yes, get grafting Wayland. I do use proper grafting tape, but it isn't necessary - a strip of plastic cut from a freezer bag will work just as well.  I tend to finish off  with a bit of electrical tape, just to make it more secure.
This was a Pitmaston Pineapple I grafted over last week to Broxwood Foxwhelp.
