It’s finally arrived.
The urge to plant and get ready for Summer.
In Carmarthen I succumbed to some irises (love these), Dahlias (don’t usually like those, but look at the colour. How could I resist?) and beautiful gladioli.
Sweet peas of course. I think if I could only grow one thing it would be these.
On a more practical level potatoes and courgette. I keep reminding myself of the courgette glut of 2014 but I guess it’s fair to say I’m not a quick learner because I’ve planted 12 already.
I always assume they’ll be a high attrition rate…
Purple sprouting broccoli -I haven’t grown this before but I do love it.
A beautiful looking goosegog.
I forgot to write about our fruit bushes – last month we purchased about 12 different fruit bushes. red current, black current, cultivated blackberry so we now that the start of a fruiting bed.
I foresee lots of pies.
What else do I need? Having done a quick inventory of my seed box I need sweetcorn and broadbeans a
nd maybe more sweetpeas
