Fun in the Garden

Helping with the gardening
We had some beautiful weather last week, which of course has started everything in the garden growing nicely, especially the weeds, of which we have loads.  But I got all the digging done in the sunshine, cant ask for more really.
Purple Sprouting Broccoli
Its so nice having food from the garden again after the winter. This is the first time I have grown purple sprouting broccoli but I will definitely grow it again this year.  It seemed the most difficult thing was keeping the slugs and caterpillars off it in the summer as I sowed loads of seeds and had quite a few seedlings but only 3 plants survived to harvesting.

Its nice to see the horseradish coming up for the second year, but it looks much different to last year, wonder what it will do next.
