Spring has arrived and the weather thus far has been absolutely beautiful. Sunny and warm – perfect growing weather. Long may it continue. I have been trying to fill gaps in my beds at the moment, but I seem to be ripping out finishing crops faster than I can plant them at the moment. There are exceptions though. I am still getting a few broccoli side shoots and the watercress is growing really well.
Lettuce is lovely at the moment. Lots of beautiful big leaves. My latest radish sowing is just about big enough to pull.
The parsley is getting bigger and bigger and the last of the chillies have been cut. These chillies are really the last of last seasons crop – these set in Autumn and have slowly ripened over winter. I potted up a couple of my better performing chilli plants today and harvested a couple of fruit at the time.
For more head over to Daphne’s Dandelions where abundant harvests await.
