Weeded and tidied and spread lots of lime to help the plants absorb the fertilizers and improve the soil (they say to wait 2 weeks before applying fert after liming the soil though). Picked the big heads of the tender stems broccoli and have been enjoying them muchly. There are sprouts erupting from every leaf joint. The provencal peas are flowering and exploring their woven frame.
There are very nice small guavas at the moment.
Prepared the bed with a spade or three of compost and planted 48 (6X9 of the fattest/bestest) garlic in a tight grid using bits of an old trellis. I lay it out so the hole in the gaps is the right distance to the next hole ( for garlic 5" apart is just nice).
