April, come she will

And finally the garden bursts into life.

After a fortnights holiday its good to see so much now going on in the garden. I’ve got a first row of early potatoes “Mona Lisa” in and all the seeds I’ve sown are beginning to sprout in the modules. Including the hard to grow from seed artichokes.

The garlic is looking good and the shallots are now sprouting.

We have also had some help with our gardening!…

Along the local lane blackthorn is showing as well as hazel and pussy willow.

There is still a lot to do and as the next three days are going to be warm and sunny, we will be planting some more potatoes, and sowing some beetroot and turnip.
