With the onset of Spring the garden has started to come back to life.

The fruit trees are all starting to put on blossom and leaf and so far we have had no major frost or wind to knock them around. The last few weeks have seen the completion of the raised edge and a frame for the tomatoes to grow up.  The new compost bins have started to do their job and we have been removing pretty good quality soil from them. The asaparagus has started to come up so we'll leave that for next year. We rediscovered the yams we planted last year so they are also sitting. The onions and garlic have all been putting on size for the last few months so hopefully they come to something. The borage growing around the trees has all come away and the bees seem to be enjoying it. Hopefully that pays off in terms of fruit this year.
