Spring Has Sprung

I have to confess, in the last couple of weeks I’ve been feeling a little negative about this whole gardening lark – the potatoes appeared to have just vanished, the onions had a disasterous planting out, and things were looking pretty bad.

However, nature has finally noticed that spring is here, and things are growing with enthusiasm. My potato plants have finally put in an appearance (well, 9 out of the 10 I planted anyway), the cabbages seem to have endured my green “planting out” fingers and even the onions – which I were certain had died – are finally showing signs of going green once more, and actually starting to grow.

At the same time, the twig that is our little fig tree is putting out in impressive array of budding leaves, and it’s starting to look like things are going to grow in our garden this year after all!
