at what I’ve achieved since I started plotting again at the beginning of March. It’s all looking good, as it should do, as I’ve spent plenty of time happily working away in what has been a surprisingly prolonged spell of good weather.
The onions were the first to appear with the leaves now at least a couple of inches tall. There are gaps in the rows where some haven’t appeared but I’ll get more today to plant out during the week. It’s been so dry that I decided to water them yesterday which is something that I generally don’t do.
It’s always a relief to see the first signs of growth like this, and I’m now eagerly anticipating everything else.
Last week I sowed lots more flower, along with a few vegetable, seeds and I’ve now reached the stage where although there’s still more to be sown over the next month or so it’ll mostly be weeding, watering if need be and waiting.
I’ve seen a few fluttering butterflies, mostly whites and what I’m pretty sure was a male orange-tip, along with lots of honey bees drinking from the pond.
