I can't believe, that after all that really cold, frosty weather, that we are having such warm days. It is so nice to be outside and not freeze to death. I had my jacket on and got too warm. It was lovely. We got another raised bed sorted out. This one needed the timber sides replacing as the originals had rotted. I felt very satisfied with what we accomplished again.
They are the ones at the back with the black plastic covering. Tomorrow we are going to tackle the one in the middle on the right. The bricks surrounding this one have crumbled quite badly so we'll replace them with the timber boards. It will also be slightly shorter, that way we can fit in another bed between the two at the far end and the two in the middle. This part of our garden is very sheltered. It can get quite windy where we live at the top of a hill but the veg plot is protected all around and it really cuts out a lot of the wind.
The rhubarb has survived and is growing well.
The snowdrops are still flowering, I've never known them so late. These are from my great aunt's garden and must date back quite a few years.
This must have self seeded because I didn't plant it.
It seems that my Mother's Day request was taken seriously doesn't it, looks like my vegetable plot will be just how I want it within a couple of weeks.
