Or rather exploded. It’s been warm off and on since february, but last week was wintery – grey, cold and windy. Today it’s like a summer day, as was yesterday and probably 10 days on. And inspiring early garden activity. Like opening up the rest huts.

Planting trees and bushes like this grape plant.

And start more cabbages, lettuce and herbs.

I also tilled the crop circle where the students had spread compost, made a couple beds where I set onions, and carrots.

And set a row of Timo potatoes as the sun was getting low.

It’s quite early for here and I may have to cover for later frost, but it’s worth a try.
