Lovely to see the first of the asparagus appear today – small but perfectly formed, LOL! Here’s hoping there will be more to come.
The lilies are doing well:
Although some of them obviously don’t like being with their gang as here they are trying to escape the bed!
I also planted more gladioli bulbs to fill up the gladioli bed, though I have about 25 or so more to plant from the new ones so will have to find a place for them somewhere …
We have also planted sweet peas in the old compost area:
We moved the compost area as we are making a large all year round fruit cage which we are hoping will be more reliable than the one we have been improvising with each year up to now – so needed to move the compost to the other side of the shed where the sweet peas used to be …
As you can see, we’ll need to move the old sweet pea trellis to the other side at some point.
So today’s harvest is super-small, as we’re giving the rhubarb time to catch up before we harvest more of it:
Here are the tulips at home. The gorgeous big yellow ones at the front are called Orange Princess – and they are just amazing. After a couple of days they turn more orange, open up, and have green lines in them as well. Will definitely be getting more of those.
Have a lovely Bank Holiday Monday!
