The sun is shining and everything seems possible today. Optimism replacing the creeping mardyness brought on by the cold miserable weather.
We're rediscovering the back door of the barn.
It faces onto the little track that runs down the side of the property. The huge bushy stuff is bamboo. It likes it there but it is taller than the barn and it's knocking the tiles off the roof. Plus it's a nice bit of wall to grow something more useful on. After all how many pea sticks do you need?
Friends want bits for their gardens or for pots on the patio but it's not that genteel designery type of plant. It sends up spears, not shoots, which rapidly grow to 15 or 20 feet tall. I can see us engaging in jungle warfare for some time to come.
I think the tomatoes have had it but it's too nice a day to care.
We have peas, carrots, french beans and spuds, next cold day I'll try making soup. Tomorrow judging by the forecast.
