Spring must be on the way

Two bags of onion sets arrived last week.

And today two boxes of seed potatoes arrived. I ordered three "collections" from Thompson and Morgan - a salad collection, a conservation collection and an allotment collection. Six varieties in each collection, ten tubers of each variety. I'm going to have to sort them out. I have no idea now which are the earlies and maincrops, though I do know which are the salad potatoes!

And the snowdrops down the back are nearly flowering.

The garden has emerged from the snow.

There is a distinct promise of spring in the air.

But let us not be too hasty. It's still only February. It is way, way, way too early to start planting. Might be time to get digging, though!
