Spring is exciting
All the fruit trees are starting to flower, seeds in trays are sprouting. We are doing tomatoes(yellow and red cherries,beefsteakand heritage all started from seeds collected last summer) lettuces, herbs (rocket and basil are favourites), we have started peppers(I usually remember these too late) and aubergines. Strawberries in hanging baskets are going well, raspberries are really going well even the black ones that have never fruited before. I realised I pruned them in their first year when I wasn't supposed to. The red ones were being eaten but spraying with gatlic spray and checking daily seemed to have sorted that out. We just hope that the wind doesn't blow off lots of young fruit like it did last year.
