It has continued to rain - this morning when I went out to the field my flower beds were still under water - the tulips were still snug in their paper bags in the ambulance.
I decided that I had to do something.
I dug up the two long beds in the tunnel - where we usually grow our early salad - and have crammed in some of the tulips bulbs.
1000 bulbs , 100 each of 10 varieties, are now planted.
I don't normally grow any of my flowers in the tunnel - it is really there for starting off and overwintering seedlings - I am a bit worried that mice might eat the bulbs or that there will be an aphid problem when they flower. Still there doesn't seem to be much of an option.
Very poor crop management!
Now I am off to sort out a list of products for the Country Living Fair - it is creeping up quickly and I have no stock left over from Christmas.
