Little Things in the Garden
They say little things please little minds and I can certainly agree that it is the little things that are making me happy in the polytunnel this week:
This little lettuce seedling will soon be ready to be transplanted:
Just germinated chard seedlings:
A courgette seedling:
Potatoes peeping through (and weeds!):
Flowers on my overwintereing mibuna plants. Mibuna is an oriental vegetable and I have left a couple to go to flower hoping the scent from them will attract bees into the polytunnel to pollinate my broad beans.
Outside it is all still a very different story with hail and rain meaning the soil is too wet and cold to work. I did manage to get my shallots and onions planted, some broad beans I had started in the polytunnel planted out and some more broad beans sown but I am waiting for more warm and dry weather to really get going. Come on Spring - I am getting itchy gardening fingers!
I am joining in with How Does Your Garden Grow so do head on over there for some more gardening blog posts.
