We finally had some rain and the garden is looking newly washed and suddenly the weeds have decided to put on a growth spurt! I really must get out there and fight back. We have already sampled the raspberries and a few of the 'new'potatoes, I've made rhubarb crumbles and I keep eyeing up the tomatoes. The lettuces have been nibbled so Colin has covered them and the beetroot is looking good. The sweetpeas have self seeded and are a riot of colour. Colin picked some the other day and they make the house smell glorious!
