Its Spring Again

It certainly feels like spring, 
warm sunny days in January
warm enough to outside without a jacket.
We had a Billy on hire, he spent about 5 weeks with us, 
Sunday was time to return him, he was of a lovely temperament 
lets hope he throws us some nice kids with his temperament
 The poly tunnel has been having its winter clean up,
just the outside to wash down now.
 I have been setting some horseradish roots and split a parsley
 and moving some of the plants around.
 The last of the heritage potatoes have been taken up
there is still some everyday white potatoes to take up.
 We are down to the last of the fresh tomatoes now, 
really impressed its January an we are still eating fresh tomatoes, these were called Nepal another heritage one, you can pick them green and store them until the end of the season.
 Up at Sols final resting place, I ave been planting some Hyacinth bulbs for a bit of spring colour.
He is buried next to Kara. 
A lovely spot in our woodland field that gets the sun most of the day.
Thank you every one for your comments they were appreciated.


  1. It is bright and sunny here in the Yorkshire Dales Dawn but very cold. In fact we have had several snow flurries today but it is set to warm up again by the weekend.

  2. It did feel warm and springlike today (I saw the first Primrose in December and the first Celendine last Sunday, in bud but nearly out and daffodils alongside the A40 yesterday at Trecastle.)

    I am amazed you are still picking fresh tomatoes in January! You are already on top of the jobs that need doing (I wish I could say the same).

    Sol's grave will look beautiful in the spring, with the bulbs you planted.

  3. Wow! Tomatoes in January - I am impressed!

    When I have buried the rabbits, it is always with a flower or some other plant on the grave to remind us daily of them.

  4. Your hard food-growing plans and work are paying off! Lovely to have tomatoes in January.


Thank you for taking the time and leaving a comment I do appreciate it, I may not always answer comments but I do read them all.
