I've dug out my old, unproductive asparagus patch, and rescued a few healthy looking crowns that I've re-homed at the lotty. Whilst at the lotty, I've moved some raspberries away from the invading couch grass from next door's plot. And brought a few strawberry runners back, to add to the ones that look very happy by the apple trees in the garden.

I've also resown my spring onions which had very poor emergence. I really don't do very well with spring onions - anyone any tips ?

Worn out. nanight

I can't seem to get spring onions to do either though I do recall a couple of years ago when I was looking for some seeds to sow fairly late and just chucked a few in a space that they did well that time.
I seem to be catching up though the only action is in the tunnel.  Broad beans are up, strawberries are getting pollinated, potatoes are earthed up, carrots sown, peas coming well and I have caught one mouse that was eating them, the bed is ready for tomatoes, figs haven't dropped off yet and the rosemary is in flower and smells beautiful.  In the greenhouse, squashes and courgettes have germinated and one cucumber, tomatoes are waiting for planting out and melons and peppers are doing well on a heated mat.
Outside - it's been really cold most of the time.  I've brought the fork back from the polytunnel to dig the weeds out of the bed where the spuds (second earlies) are going that's when I've cleared the netting and debris from last year's beans  Embarassed  I really must get a bit more going outside.

I've never had any success with Spring onions either.
Cold here at the moment. Haven't put much out yet though may plant out sunflowers while the slugs are sluggish. Trying to decide where to site squash so they have room to roam.
Strawberries outside are flowering and earliest apples and pears are blossoming.
