when i read this that was my first thought im off to hudds this week and know some ace patches ,round here the ones i know are far too doggy for comfort
First little shoots popping up in the garden.
Picked a decent sized batch of unforced rhubarb on Sunday.
|Nicky Colour it green
||yup saw some down by the river bank spring is springing|
||Mine arrived a fortnight ago, already had it as a liner in the cup whilst poaching eggs, lovely!|
||Smelt the wild garlic when I was last in the seriously garlicky patch a few weeks ago. Must check again soon. Haven't seen any elsewhere yet. We coppiced that area last year, and a lot of other things have developed over the spring and summer, so am interested to see what happens to the garlic. May well be an decrease, but we have so much that I am not worried. Not edible, but saw some celandine flowers yesterday.|
Celandines have been popping up for weeks here. Wild garlic is well on the way. Snowdrops are over their best. Sloe blossom starting to peep out, also elder and hawthorn leaves. Daffs breaking out all over the place! It's all starting to happen
eta - celandine roots are edible and meant to cure piles!
Been picking leaves for a couple of weeks - I cannot believe how early everything is this year
No omelettes here but DUCKLINGS ARE HATCHING
||The wild garlic is coming up, but still not much more than 3" high and not properly unfurled yet. Found several patches through the wood yesterday.|
