Spring sunshine!

Ah, finally some sun and warmth! We've been late allotmenting this year and the Isak beetroots haven't grown a millimeter in 3 weeks. Today they will shoot up! We're haing a problem with snails as well... they've had a good nibble at the chilli plants, the peas and even the strawberry leaves. Grandma told us to smear the pots with vaseline to keep the slugs and the snails off. Last years tip of scattering crushed egg shells on top of the soil didn't do the trick. Lets see if this works!
