I began the day at lunchtime saving some tomato seeds from an Italian Glorioso tomato that I had purchased in the reduced section at Morrisons .

After that I attempted to remove some 'slips' from the Covington Sweet Potato that I had had producing 'slips' and roots since January 1st 2015 . This is very much an experiment for me as I have never succeeded in growing Sweet Potato yet but after reading about others who have managed to grow their own in the U.K. I thought I would give it another go in 2015.

Elsewhere on the plot I emptied the ash from the woodburning stove and put this on the bed that has Turbo Onion sets growing in it and checked on the contents of a compost bin that I had been filling with the domestic kitchen waste since last summer.
