It looks like mother nature is doing her thing at the vegetable patch. Or should that be father nature as my photos always seem to show Martin doing all the work. I do help, honestly – I fetch the water and take the photos and I also made the bunting…:-)
The peas and beans are scrambling up the poles, the carrot seeds are sprouting green shoots and the new potatoes look spuddy marvellous!
We have already eaten the first batch of rhubarb from the back garden which was delicious (even though I overcooked it, oops… my bad!).
The gooseberries are beginning to show – and I will be making a fool of myself when they are harvested.
Still to plant: courgettes raised from seed currently in pots. I am looking for a yellow species ( is that the right term?) to brighten up my summer salads.
Check out the teeny tiny one…I wonder why it hasn’t grown like it’s fellows?
We are also trying swiss chard and sugarsnap peas from seeds for the first time – look out for more garden gossip.
