It’s been a while but an old friend is back. Following the resurgence of the Tigers and to mark their return to a top 4 place in the premiership I have re-mounted the flag on my allotment shed. Unfortunately the wind is coming from the wrong direction for the full effect. 

Talking of allotments – I have a lot of catching up to do.

My broad beans are starting to flower – which strikes me as being a bit early!…But thats not the only sign that spring is well and truly on its way.

Raspberry shoots are appearing in the beds, here’s hoping for a bumper crop of the most fantastically aromatic and tasty fruit.

Here is another tasty crop. The purple sprouting broccoli are finally here. They were stripped of green leaf by pigeons a couple of months a go but they have recovered well and starting to give a decent crop of one of my favourite veggies.

Together with a few rhubarb sticks from under my forcing bucket. the makings of a lovely dinner. Yummmmmmm!
