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.
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.
