Spring is near! by Catherine Evans :: 22nd February 2009

This is a photo of the clutter on my kitchen windowsill – I thought it was full of the promise of spring – new growth, primroses and an Easter chick!

Yesterday afternoon I trimmed and tied in all the summer fruiting raspberry canes, hopefully ready for a bumper crop again this year. Once the ground dries out a bit more I am ready to plant onions and shallots; maybe some garlic but it is really too late. I am also starting a new strawberry bed – the plants get tired after about 4 years (and my old patch was over-run with couch grass).

The pigs are growing well and will probably be ready by Easter, lots of lovely sausages!
