Been eating rhubarb for a few weeks now, starting with the forced stuff. Strawberries are just starting and are delicious. Had our first home grown lettuce today and in the next day or so the first of the kohlrabi will be ready to eat.
Broad beans are still in the flower stage and the beets and cabbages and chard are nowhere near ready but the fennel is starting to fatten nicely.
Loads of fruits forming on the blueberries and red and blackcurrants and gooseberries and my newish blackberry and the logan and tayberries are covered in blossom so promise well. Hoping for a good crop of damsons and some fat juicy autumn raspberries in due course.
Pumpkins are looking very sad though. Cold nights not good for them.
