In Bloom

Back from Austria and straight to the plot.  What a difference a week makes. Whilst I knew we’d probably come back to a crop of the forced rhubarb, which if you remember from this post is destined for jam, I didn’t expect the rest of our plants to have taken off in quite the same way.

I did feel a bit like and aged relative walking around, saying to everything ‘my, haven’t you grown’.  I think sometimes when you see things everyday it’s easy not to notice.

Of course there’s plenty of empty beds that need to be filled so starting with aubergines, peppers and sweetpeas it’s now that the serious business of sowing begins.

      It always amazes me how quickly it changes at this time of year.

    You’re right – it’s that time of year again and with the warm weather everything is romping away. I sowed french beans in pots just a week ago and already they are about 3 inches high! I’m not sure what to do with them now as the weather is too unpredictable to plant them out. I keep telling them to slow down!
