Last week we were still in winter, no sign of leaves on the trees or hedges. On my return from London on Saturday it felt as if I had been away for a week….what a difference a warm sunny day can make. The grass was greener and that yellow haze on the trees, showing signs of leaf. Much work done at the Verrow this week, looks like we are going to get a much wanted early start to this season. First batch of peas and broad beans sown and plumping up in the warm fertile soil. The greenhouse is full of tidy rows of growing seedlings, radish, rocket, pak choi and spinach, all of these hopefully making their appearances in the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile we have lots of greens to offer this week ruby and green chard, glossy beetroot tops, purple sprouting too. A few bunches of spring flowers too.
