Spring weather, at last

 Now that the weather is starting to warm up, the garden is returning to its greener state.  The pond is showing signs of life as the newts emerge.  We have only seen one frog this year and there is no spawn in the pond, This is the first time in over 20 years that the frogs have not spawned here.
 The Rhubarb is starting to become suitable for picking and we have had our first taste of this fine vegetable.
 The Ransoms (wild garlic) are in full leaf at the side of the shed.  It will not be long before they are in flower.
Today, I started to reorganise the greenhouse.  Seed tomatoes are big enough to re-pot, so I have constructed a frame and planted some of them out.  Courgettes and beans are also coming on.  Now I need to turn my attention to the raised beds and other seedling crops, ready for the warmer weather.  Next job will be to plant out the potatoes.
