Well, in the corner of our garden, we have an old, neglected vegetable patch. Of course, I imagine myself turning into Hugh F-W, making amazing food from my own produce, so I started to clear the patch. It looks like this:
I think that’s an ancient raspberry cane, so I am trying to nurture that. I’m sure we’ll be feasting on fresh, sun warmed raspberries all summer 😉 There’s also a plant which I think is chard – does anyone else know? I don’t want any upsetting mistakes!
Weeding was very satisfying. I took a leaf (ahem) out of Alys Fowler’s book and just settled to it, and the end result was great. I only managed about two square feet of bare soil while the Little One was at nursery, but it was worth it.

Our local WI had a plant sale at which I picked up some strawberry plants, a courgette and some herbs, so we are well on our way!
