Such a long title! I honestly couldn’t think of anything nippy or fun. It is what it is.
Work has begun on the allotment. Mum and I are taking on half of the allotment this year, and although dad has been very tardy in beginning work on his section (!) mum and I have begun plotting and planning and this weekend we spent four lovely hours weeding and planting our first crops.
We have planted two new rhubarb plants but cannot eat from them for a year – they need time to mature. We were lucky with this rhubarb plant last year though and I am already dreaming of poached rhubarb and rhubarb tarts – expert posts and recipes in the near future.
The garden pretty much takes care of itself, we are fortunate that we have very few weeds and although the roses have just been pruned and the deadheading of the hydrangeas has also been done I know that soon there will be a hive of activity. Last autumn we set about planting more bulbs. Daffodils and irises mainly. I am still not keen on tulips in the garden and prefer to pick them up from the florist for indoor fun instead.
So, how is your garden coming on? I know the daffodils are slightly early but I couldn’t be happier to finally have some colour popping up.
