Planting seeds in the vegetable garden

30 May 2012: Now that the warm weather has arrived, we can all think of outdoors and doing something about the garden. Chelsea Garden Show has been on during the week, and makes me wonder how these people prepare everything so early and in spite of the very cold late spring.
    All the seeds I planted earlier in April or early May were killed off by late frosts. The heatwave turned the ground to concrete, so these are being kept moist with stored rainwater.

The string lines enable me to know precisely where to trickle the water in case the drought continues, and my rainwater store is running short. It also stops the cat using that particular zone for scratching!
