Spring is in full flow

It’s hard to believe that we’re already into week 4 of lockdown. Spring is everywhere, the butterflies and bees are busy dotting about, the cries of lambs echo all around the fields, pungent wild garlic permeates the air and that eye-popping acid green of new growth is bursting out all over.

The lockdown has meant that I now have a lot more personal time than I’ve ever had before, it’s quite nice not going at a 100mph all the time. The days are noticeably much longer and I’m finding time to get out running every day as well as other pursuits like reading and crafting and I’ve also started making sourdough bread – things I’ve wanted to try for years but never seemed to get around to.

Of course, the garden is getting much more attention than usual. I’ve been digging out the veggie beds and enriching the soil ready to get planting. We’re still getting regular frosts but it won’t be long now. We’ve also got ourselves a new mini greenhouse so we can move seedlings out of the conservatory where they have a tendency to burn and completely dry out during these sunny days.

Gosh, I love this time of year and I’ve really enjoyed having the time to properly notice everything as well.

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all the amazing key workers that are putting themselves at risk every day while we stay home and safe.

  1. Ha, yes, I got a bit excited sowing my seeds and for some reason – the courgettes and brassicas never fail to grow well. I’ve always fancied making sourdough and a neighbour gave me some of their starter so with al of this extra time thought I’d give it a go – been really enjoying it, plus it tastes great
