things about a garden is the anticipation it provides…wrote W.E. Johns, the author of the Biggles books.
I think that is particularly true at this time of year when we’re waiting to see if the various flowers and vegetables that we’ve recently planted or sown have started growing.
One of the first things that I do on arriving at the plot is look round to see what has and last week I was pleased to see the broad beans Witkiem Manita appearing. Now that they have I can weed round them, and fill in any gaps.
I was plotting every day again except yesterday, when it was chilly and showery, and it’s now almost reached the stage where most of plotting I’ll be doing over the next couple of weeks is just weeding.
One of the most delightful things for me last week were the yellow tulips.
Have a good week, and happy gardening!
