Sunny & quite warm, but very windy. On a day like this the opening of a tulip can be watched & a distinct difference noted every few hours. Sowed turnips (2 rows, white), peas (English wonder – a bit early after the others, but these were not soaked, which will set them back a day or two), & the remaining potatoes (K. Edward). This makes 16 rows of 20-25 plants in a row, ie. about 350 plants. If they do reasonably well this should yield about 5 cwt.
Blackthorn almost out in some places. A few blossom on the wild plum.
