It's all go in the garden. The raised beds have started growing well, corn and pumpkins have come up and are racing along with the warm weather and the potatoes are doing their thing. This year we're ready for potatoes and are mounding up around them to try and get a bit more out of them. We have our red currant cuttings in the ground now as they were strong enough to be planted out. The raspberries have gone crazy and the blackberries have been joined by a boysenberry so we've got a good range of fruit now. It looks like the peaches and apricot were hammered by late frost and lost all the fruit so it's not looking good for them this year. A new plum and granny-smith apple have also become part of our little orchard. It's starting to look really good back there.
