Spring has sprung

Some pleasant sunny weather at last this weekend, little birds flitting about, butterflies fluttering and bees buzzing. Saw the first bat of the year the other night and the swifts are back from Africa. Can't ask for more than that really.

The peas are coming along nicely, I've planted out some more cabbages and sowed the first row of carrots. Taken the first cut of comfrey for fertiliser, kept the seedlings watered in the greenhouse and fretted about frost.

Rather slim pickings from the garden at this time of year but plenty of fresh green growth, much of it edible - salad greens, rocket, hedge garlic - and broccoli. And, erm, broccoli. Good job I like broccoli.

Don't talk to me about cats - bloody shitting machines!
