With a bit ofIMG_3371 warmth things are progressing well, and some nice leeks and psb for supper. More seeds planted today: beetroot Chioggia / Cheltenham Green Top and yellow cylindrical as well as a white variety; two Turkish chillis Urfa Biber & Aci Sivri and Purple Jalapeneo; purple basil (which was wonderful last year); flat leaved parsley and some dwarf yellow french beans, variety Rocquencourt.

The broad beans and various peas are all looking healthy and salad leaves/radishes also taking off. The only pestilential activity I’ve found was a mass of aphids on the roses – my green thumb and finger a clue to their fate…

  3. Lovely to see what grows from your devotion. I brought back shape to my garden today by cutting the grass, and then watched my four Tulips (the only bulbs that escaped the rodents) gently swaying in the breeze. A precious rest before it’s back to organise the care transition for my dad.

    Thank you dear Ashen. Your garden is always a sanctuary and place of tranquility – so important to find in amongst all the demands of life.
