Spring is now officially upon us, and the ground is warming up enough for us to plant and sow outdoor crops; the polytunnels are also warming up causing our winter crops to bolt, but also allowing us to plant early summer crops. We are now heading into the Hungry Gap, my least favourite time of year, but there are plenty of reasons to be cheerful:-

Planting outdoor salad to replace the polytunnel salad, a lot of which is now bolting.

Celendines on top of a Cornish hedge in the farmyard.

Seedlings germinating in the hot bed (cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, chillies, basil, French beans etc..).

Primroses in the pollinator garden
