I returned to the task of setting up the mini greenhouse today, it is still very strained but hopefully will stay upright for the season!. The cover fit over it OK and I have anchored it down around the sides inside and out. I cable tied the shelves in place as I did last year because I think it gives some degree of stability to the whole frame.
I insulated it with bubble wrap as some late frosts could wipe out any tender seedlings and we can get frost well into April or early May.
I transferred the seed potatoes from the shed into the greenhouse as they will get a lot more light in there.

Onion sets spread out in seed trays as recommended by Terry Walton,you can see if there are any soft or damaged ones.
Shallots will be started in modules, we have not grown these before so will have to read up on them.
What not to do with your seed potatoes!
For some reason I did not put this bag of Duke of York out to seed wen I was doing the others, maybe I ran out of trays or time? They have been in the bag under the stairs and when I went to get them today this is what I found.
White spindly stalks which will not be good for growing.Some of them broke while I was trying to remove them from the bag. They may grow other stronger stalks in the light

Snow White came to visit today and climbed on my rocking chair!
