Rocketing along

 The garden has that spring explosion going on at the moment, some warm days, mixed with a bit of rain here and there makes it all lush and green, with some bright flowers thrown in to make it look cheery.  My first tomatoes of the season don't look too far away, little yellow cherry tomatoes when they are ripe.
 The first of the raspberries will certainly be ready before Christmas

 Potatoes have taken off after a soak of rain early last week
 Garlic will be ready soon as well
 Nice little crop of carrots
 Apricots looking happy.  Our fruit trees have been establishing themselves for the last few years, we should start to see some harvests from now on.
 Ripe strawberries!
 And a new member of the family, Violet the mini lop rabbit, an early birthday present for Liv

Wow everything is coming along nicely. Ripe strawberries already mine are a fair way behind. I think I will have loganberries by christmas Im not sure about rasberries. Love your new bunny I bet the girls love him.

Hi Sharon, the strawberries are the Cambridge Rival variety, and I think they fruit earlier, but need a bit of shade protection when summer really heats up. Little Violet is bringing much joy to the girls!
