Beautiful spring weather. Heard the cuckoo (first time). Many midges about now. Bullace blossom pretty well out. Cut the grass, dug a trench for 3rd row of peas, gave the strawberries a little more manure. These are now free of weeds. If they have one more good weeding after the bindweed has shown itself & the annual weeds have begun, they can then be strawed & netted up. A few broad beans up.

In my “mind” the declaration that the strawberry patch is now weed free is made with images swirling in his cranium of the relentless effort necessary to be able to make this pronouncement validating the value of strawberry cheesecake throughout history.
The cuckoo at last!

Dug a trench, eh? Good man!
