Finally able to get into the garden....

Last weekend I finally managed to start preparing for some work in the garden, a bit of tidying up, digging over the raised beds, removing the old strawberry plants ready for sorting & re-planting & I even managed to mow the lawn. The first crop of forced rhubarb was had last week as well, just lightly stewed with some Demerera sugar & a vanilla pod.

Today I have planted my chitted Red Duke of York potatoes. Fingers crossed for a good crop, they were wonderful eating last year so have planted a couple more, some garlic & horseradish went in today as well, then rain stopped play.
