As the unseasonal snow we had last weekend melts, I have noticed small spinach leaves showing through. This was planted last autumn and never came to anything.
I’ve never actually had any luck with anything in the baskets (as shown above), apart from parsley, which is growing once again. So, it is a mystery to me that crops I have had difficulty with are apparently thriving in what I think must be adverse conditions.
Aside from the relative success of my crops planted last autumn, I am dismayed that I won’t be able to take advantage of a day at home tomorrow to get moving with preparations for my spring garden. Unless, there is a sudden rise in temperatures – we are on about 3°C at present – and lots of glorious sun before breakfast. Of course, anything is theoretically possible but I wouldn’t want to hold out hope at this stage.
Suffice to say, I think that I might just enjoy a little salad this evening. Fresh spinach is one of my favourites 🙂
