Today Samuel and I pulled all of our carrots – a great harvest of them. Plus, I actually got some brussel sprouts for dinner! (N.Z’s most hated vegetable) But best of all was sampling the very first sun-warmed strawberry from my new strawberry patch. Delicious!
Milly’s rascally Indian Runner ducks have discovered my lettuces though – I’m going to have build a fence and a gate to keep them out. Grrr.
On the flower side – today I discovered my first two blooms on my clematis. And the thornless Zephirine Drouhin has begun flowering, while my sweet peas are just taking over!! I have a vase of them in the bathroom and the fragrance is heavenly. What a lovely time of year spring is.
Can you smell it???
