Edinburgh has had a terribly dry, dull, cold April and early May this year but things seem to progressing even before the promised rain of this weekend. My early early row of potatoes has started emerging (and are being dutifully mounded). I've never been keen on watering spuds but I made an exception for the really early ones and they seem to have responded.

The soft fruit area is getting a move on too and soon I will have to sling a net over the newly painted wooden frame

The redcurrants are shaping up nicely....

Three rows of raspberries seem to have sprung to life.
