We’ve had some glorious sunshine this week. Today I sneaked outside and ate my lunch in the garden for the first time since September. I felt like a cat, stretched out and snoozing in the sunshine. How I dragged myself back inside to carry on working I’ll never know.
Things are starting to happen in the garden now. There was a bit of tidying to do after the winter.
I was surprised at how many seedlings have made it through the winter – usually I can barely keep things alive for a week or two but these have been going for nearly five months! It’s been a mild winter, and the slugs haven’t been active, but I’m hoping this is the start of good things to come.
But on the whole things are looking good out there.
I harvested some cabbage and kale today – the first of this year. It’s put on a bit of a growth spurt these last few weeks, and is just about big enough for me to be happy ripping bits off. It made some very tasty fried rice, and I’ve added the total to my garden tally page.
