Jumps Up'n'Down....then goes Ouch!
With the much sunnier weather, and the recent glazing of my 'mini-me' greenhouse, the girls are growing a treat now. And that's not compost in the potting tray, it's my cat (obviously, why wouldn't it be!) - she's got a thing about curling up for a snooze, especially if I'm kind enough to put some horticultural fleece in there for her added comfort.
Only another 15 or 20 Parsnsips to dig up and consume - bit sick of Parsnips now, if truth be known, but I've got a lovely Denis Cotter (amazing Irish Vegetarian Chef) recipe for Parsnip, Potato & Wild Rice Rostis, which freeze well.
Most of my herbs survived the freezing Winter we've just had, apart from the Rosemary, so I'll have to replace and reposition that somewhere more cozy. This archway could have nice smelly Sweet Peas up it this year me thinks, and once the Viburnums and Hibiscus come into leaf, it'll add intrigue to the garden beyond.
