Spring shoots

And, so it begins. Well quite slowly actually due to all the rain. But it is the end of March and the field has been mucked, ploughed and tilled.

I have only sown parsnips, broad beans, parsley & lettuce. It’s still cold and I lost practically all early seedlings last year. Between pigeons and rabbits last year I lost all broad beans, but with the fence in place, fingers crossed for this year.

Levenshulme Farmer’s Market has been really busy and great so far. Have really enjoyed seeing people and can’t wait to get some of own home grown produce on the table. Have been foraging in the woods for wild garlic (ramsons) though,  so these brighten up the table at this time of year.
