Lots of things are coming up in the garden and I'm hopeful that it will produce more for us this year.
Firstly, the rhubarb is romping away. I don't normally pick any until the stems are a bit pinker, but it looks as if it will be a bumper crop.
The apple blossom is just starting to bloom and I've got my fingers crossed that we don't get any frost to ruin it !
The pear blossom is even further along than the apple and as it was a poor crop last year I hope that we will do a bit better this Autumn. We also have blueberries in bloom and the blackcurrants, raspberries and gooseberries are also looking very healthy. The strawberries already have a few flowers on them. which makes me a bit nervous as I know we could still get a frost. MrShoestring and I have been looking out the garden fleece just in case !
The lettuce seedlings which we have had under a cold frame are doing very well and so far no slugs !
The tomatoes, which we started in January are also doing well in the polytunnel, so I have high hope of a good crop this year !
Seeds are sprouting in all the beds which we planted up last week, so we are feeling that the garden is well in hand. Here's hoping that it continues !
How is your garden doing ?
