My gardening diary is in fifty two weekly parts starting at week one - January 1st. Some weeks have entries that go back to 1999 and have a weekly update for each year since. Sowing and planting times are not always critical in the garden but to get optimum crop yields in the allotment it does help to have a good guide as to when to sow and plant. Here are the dates when I planted the first new potatoes or sowed the first runner beans each year.
Unfortunately this is not a complete account and you will find that some years are missing an entry
