The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Signs of Spring

when you have an allotment it’s an optimistic business but always a little shaky when spring starts. 

The blossom is very welcome but makes you wary of the frost. 

Will this plum tree bear more than three fruit this year or be disastrous yet again? 

The blackberries and raspberries have new shoots and the strawberry leaves are appearing. 

There are tiny flowers on the plum and apple but they did so well last year that this year is likely to be a rest. 

All the spring bulbs have begun to show. 

New buds are bursting forth on the blueberries and currant bushes. It’s looking good. 

The clematis looks dead but coriander is self seeding now. 

Will the artichoke that has survived the winter be mature enough to create those great delicious flowers?

Who knows? But one things certain there’s likely to be a few surprises. 

What are you waiting for in your garden?

    Beans are ready to replant, onions ready to check and chill (third time of trying) are finally growing.
