I love the first early glimpses of spring, so much promise in the air, of warmth, and days outdoors, flowers, fruit and vegetables.
I wanted to share one of the earliest signs that it’s all just around the corner, the stunning blossom on my mirabelle plum tree, the first flowers have just opened. Hopefully the nights will be mild and the tree laden with golden fruit at the end of the season.
I love this time of year, everything seems to be getting ready to burst into life, you can almost sense the possibilites in the air. All my planning through the dark winter months of what I’ll be growing in my vegetable garden start taking shape.
One of the first things I get going is the chillies and tomatoes which need a long a growing season as possible, so need to be started off in a warm place as soon as you can. I went for an outdoor variety of chilli this year, and I hope to get a good harvest this year.
Have you started growing yet? and what are you planning on growing this year that you have never tried before?
And here’s a cute springtime picture of my son and I with some lambs……
