Yesterday I spent my time working in the vegetable garden weeding and freshening the beds to have them ready for the coming season. Planted the potatoes which had been 'chitting' in egg boxes on the garage window sill. There will be enough purple sprouting broccoli to pick for a meal by the end of the week. The broad beans are in full flower and looks like there will be a good crop. We have grown about six different types of garlic this year, so looking forward to tasting the different varieties. I also noticed that some asparagus spears are an inch or so above the ground. I adore asparagus and it has to be one of the nicest vegetables to grow. Sowed seeds of leeks and kale and will sow some lettuces and scallions into modules in the next few days. We always force rhubarb to have it early in the season and it has been delicious over the last month or so.
