The joys of Spring...

Spring has sprung and signs of optimism have come with it. Delightful days full of sunshine and fresh air have arrived!! There are crocuses and daffodils here, there and everywhere and I may even sow some tomato and chilli seeds in pots on a windowsill tonight.

The only slightly annoying thing is that their has been a frost for the last 2 days, and that has put me off continuing my digging at the allotment. Never mind, at least it will break up the ground which has already been seen to.

Another bonus of Spring is the first bantam egg of the year (foreground). There is nothing worse than buying eggs through the winter when you are having to feed chickens at home which will not lay! I think this one is from Barbaradeux, but I am not sure. It has felt like so long since we last had one of our own hen's eggs to eat.

I hope March brings you all a tiny piece of happiness and joy! After all, more daylight hours means more time in the garden or up at the allotment. Don't forget the clocks go forward on Easter Sunday too!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

I'll be back with another update before the weekend!



  1. It's great to get going again. I've got seedlings on the go, more seeds waiting to germinate and digging has begun on the allotment. All we need now are the days to get a bit warmer, still very cold here.

  2. Hi Just when we thought Spring had arrived we are stopped in our tracks with freezing temps and digging has to be left alone.St Patrick's day is usually the day we have our early potatoes in but that is not going to happen this year even h though they are chitting. My hens laid up to about 3 weeks ago and have now stopped!
