Well has Spring arrived, judging by this morning at the allotment............YES!

We went to plant potatoes, Pink Fir Apples to be exact. Out of all the potatoes we grew, they were by far our favourite, a bit of strange shape, all long and knobbly, but so worth the effort, the flavour is absolutely gorgeous!

I couldn't resist taking a walk around, everything is coming to life and growing. Including the raspberry supports Andy built before he went away!

At the back end of last year, we planted lots and lots of soft fruit. We decided from the outset that we would grow things that we love, but were expensive to buy. So we have Tayberries, Blackberries, Gooseberries, Redcurrents, Blackcurrents


and Rhubarb

We also put in Spring Cabbages and Onions, so soon we shall be feasting!

And lastly, just to prove Spring is here, nestling amongst the long grass and nettles behind the shed was this lone, but beautiful wild primrose, how lovely is that?
