As it was a lovely sunny morning, Bernard went out to sow some seeds in the garden. He started by raking over the soil to create a fine tilth.

Then he got the dibber out and sowed some broad beans. In the hole it goes!

Peas next. He dug out a wide drill, and laid them in it, in zig-zag fashion, before covering them up.

Once he’d sowed those, and some mange tout, he made sure the rows were labelled, and the bird netting in place. He left the watering to Mrs Human to sort out, not being very fond of water.
