It feels like spring has sprung in the garden this weekend.
Now that the new pond is filling up and contains all the fish and frogs from the old pond, we dug out the old pond and finally have our veg garden at home! Woohooo!
We’ve sown parsnips in the ground, planted some raspberries, sown peas (Feltham First and Meteor), sweet peas and some broad beans in the greenhouse, and a first sowing of chillies (Peter Pepper *) and first tomatoes (Gartenperle, a tumbling variety good for hanging baskets) in our heated propogator on the kitchen windowsill.
We also finally got the rhubarb in their new position next to the pond and covered them in manure. Hopefully we’ll have a few shoots to eat by next weekend.
* Peter Pepper chillies are supposed to look like willies, and you can see a slight resemblance to a very strange willy in some of them, but most are just fairly gnarly chillies, quite tasty though, so we’re sowing them again this year.
