This is a tray of cucumbers that have just germinated, with a very pleasing 97% germination rate!

Some slightly bigger cucumbers!

The glasshouse is full of seedlings now, ready to be planted out before too long...

Amazing weather on Saturday

It was like a summer's day, only a bit cooler. It was cracking all day, but the evening light was something else, reminiscent of May or June.

Bright, breezy, spring is here

March is a month of real growth, and there's no doubt that spring is here now. The semi-naturalised daffodils are all out, three cornered leek has been flowering for two months, nettles are growing fast and the hedges have got that lush green colour that only appears at this time of year.

Today is a fresh NW wind, but now the showers have cleared it looks glorious. Out of the wind it's really warm...
