I love this time of year.
The sun has begun to shine for longer, the garden is starting to come alive with unfurling blooms and the veg patch is flourishing.
In the kitchen garden we have apricots, blackcurrants, gooseberries and cherries coming through, in the greenhouse we have tomatoes, melons, chillis and peppers coming on strongly and in the garden the peonies, bluebells and irises are in full flow.
Each day you can see a difference in the garden as it begins to come into its own.
When I started gardening I was always more interested in the veg patch, because I loved growing a plant to then harvest something I could cook with in the kitchen.
Although I still love this, I’ve really started to get into the garden a lot more, growing more plants from scratch and learning about which blooms I can use to plug certain gaps.
And now, I love being anywhere in the garden.
I still have a lot to do before it’s where I’d like it to be…cuttings that are now ready to plant need to be transferred into the garden and vegetables need planting in the veg patch too…bring on the weekend!
