We were away in the Belgian Ardennes, and it turned out to be a weekend covered in beautiful hawthorn.

Pea and potato planting day. Lovely morning, not too hot, no rain, poifect!  I planted my maincrop today. I am growing “rooster” for the first time. It’s a lovely red all-rounder and usually the one I buy in the shops – so hoping for a good crop. The earlies have already gone in (swift & belle de fountenay) but needed labelling. My pea of choice this year is “petit provence” its a dwarf petit pois type which should give a very early crop of small sweet peas. I shall also be growing “onward”, which is a slightly bigger pea, from later sowings.

My rhubarb bed is in full swing now although for the 2nd year it has produced flower stalks?? Still its very tasty!!

We strolled the woods this weekend, and found the ferns unfurling their leaves. Some of these are edible I understand? Fiddleheads? Does this cover all ferns in spring? Does anyone have some direction on how to identify which to eat and which to avoid? (We are in Holland)
