    Starting to come to life for spring. Should look a lot different next month.

      Everything is looking much greener. 2 buckets of Charlotte potatoes under the plastic cloche.

      White currant and apple starting to break their buds. There is no sign of any of the flowers on the apricot tree producing any fruit.

      Cauliflower plants in the growhouse are growing well. The carrots under the net are rapidly being eaten, Kale is finished having bolted, and the spring cabbage is going the same way.

      Buckets of compost are now being sorted. Some will be used for potatoes in the next few days,some sieved for carrots and others put by for brassicas, depending on what grew in them last year. This is always a long and complicated job as some of the buckets have copper tape round and I use these mostly for carrots, but of course the compost in them grew carrots last year, so the compost needs swapping round.

      Meteor peas are growing nicely. Chives and garlic chives on the path. The rest of this area is a bit of a dumping ground at the moment, although some of the pots do have seeds sown in them.

        Strawberries covered with a net to stop the birds from digging them up. Charlotte potatoes getting too big for their cover.

        Apple tree has nearly finished flowering. The canes are to support fleece if frost is forecast. Hurst Greenshaft peas have been planted.

        Growhouse is full of seedlings and begonias. The green nets cover lettuces and Lady C potatoes (mainly as a frame for fleece if frost is forecast). The hosta in the green pot will need moving when it gets bigger. Buckets of newly sown carrots in the carrot cage. The carrot cage and fruit cage frames are getting old and pulling apart. The fruit cage joint was easily pushed back together but I only noticed the carrot cage was wonky when looking at this photo - the steel rod supporting the corner has snapped off inside the joint. I've now mended it with duct tape, but the whole area really needs some planning and renovating, with one of the options being a greenhouse.

        The plastic covers are protecting the potatoes from frost - the best I can do with them, but a nightmare to water. The buckets of compost help to stop the plastic flapping when it is windy. Spring cabbage and red veined spinach in the buckets.

        Meteor peas are flowering. Cauliflowers under the nets. Calabrese and kale are bolting now.

        If you can't see the pictures, clicking on the links shows them (but not the writing) - right click on the link to choose to open in a new tab. Must be to do with the changes they have made to the forum recently.

                  Another view of the potatoes almost blocking the path despite being held back by mesh. Strawberries on the shelf and in the fruit cage (which has been mended after the weekend's wind).

                  Early peas have finished but are producing more flowers. Cucumbers in the green pots. French beans and more peas at the far end. Off picture to the left are Sungold tomatoes.
