A little sun and everything awakens

By Angie, May 13 2013 04:23PM

I was amazed, having been away for four days from the plot, to discover how everything has suddenly sprung into life. My, what a difference a few days of sun and warmer temperatures makes.


Despite all the hard work on the plot (which has meant I have neglected my blog - sorry!), there was little life appearing on the plot, other than in the propagator.


My broad beans, hastily planted out under fleece three weeks ago, have now grown a further three inches and even a few flowers have started appearing.


The Redlove apple, purchased at the Edible Garden show and planted on the new plot has sprung into dark pink blossom. The plums, peaches, cherries and pears are all blossoming and the gooseberries and redcurrant/blackcurrant plants are all showing signs of good crops this year.


The salads are bulking up and the overwintered onions (which were showing little sign of life) have now burst into growth.


Of course, now the forecast is for the weather to cool down, so I will have fleece at the ready in case an overnight frost threatens.
