A great planting day

When the rain has finally fallen (6mm in the rain guage) and the weather is overcast and warm the only thing to be done is to get into the garden and make the most of it. yesterday there was no wind, the rain had ceased,  and there was no risk of sunburn. So out came the hoe and trowel and we got to work
I put in several rows of carrots, many rows of french beans, a block of corn, some lettuces, and two whole beds of potatoes.  One bag of Jersey Bennie,  creamy and waxy for spring eating, and one of indeterminate origin because I had kept them all winter in a bucket and have forgotten their exact origin.  From memory they are probably jersey bennies too.
These are Dwarf French Beans
