Yikes, March is on it’s way out and I haven’t finished the winter jobs yet! That is weather for you, never predictable and maybe that’s a good thing. This weekend I sowed onion seed and early carrots in the garden. The onions that I sowed indoors were a flop except for the large variety which is thriving along with the leeks.
I have decided not to pre-cuture a lot of things this year and just wait until I can sow them outside. Sort of an experiment to see what works better for me. So for now it is just the tomatoes peppers, celeries and leek.
I ate my own lambs lettuce in a salad yesterday, but I must sow it earlier next year and much more of it too, it would never have been enough to eat for Christmas. No spinach showing yet but I am hopeful.
My Japanese cherry is full in blossom, as is the mirabelle plum and in both the bees are swarming. Maybe I really should take up bee-keeping…. The frogs have also returned to my pond, I can hear them in the evenings croaking and can already see spawn.
I hope winter doesn’t change it’s mind and revisit us again, because I am seriously fed up with it now.
