The wonder of fresh spring green is starting to pervade the garden. First up were the berries:
Then some of the hedge we planted two years ago burst out:
And now some of the fruit trees are making their move:
The comfrey already looks well established:
And some flowers other than daffodils are getting going:
Inside the greenhouse my new grapevine is unfurling its first leaves:
The grass has also grown to the extent that Jim's started the first mow of the season. Quite challenging with all the daffodils around!
We've already got quite a few crops sown, especially in the middle paddock.
In the veg garden, the overwintering crops are growing, especially the garlic.
And Jim's digging away at the rest of the area.
The new hedges have not put out much fresh green yet, but hopefully they'll get going soon:
As usual, the last to produce leaves, and possibly the most spectacular, are the beech trees, but they're still looking distinctly wintry. Come on, beeches!
|Jostaberry - first crop this year?|
|Goji berry - another potential first crop this year|
|Forget me nots|
|Golden Champion grape|
|Mown vs unmown grass|
|Jerusalem artichokes, onions, potatoes and parsnips are in there|
|Hoping for a better crop than last year|
