I'm excited to see the first sugar snap pea ready for picking. The plants are not covered in flowers ... but I hope it's a sign that if warm weather arrives the harvest will come quickly.

It’s been so cold this spring, but the tomatoes have finally been transplanted from the windowsill to their final pots inside the polytunnel.

The apple tree has blossomed last of all the fruit on my plot. I really enjoy looking at it, and by flowering late I hope the harvest will avoid being affected by the cold spring.

Pea shoots are emerging in pots stored inside the polytunnel. I think they look good to eat even at this stage!

The sunny days are accelerating germination. This is a French bean breaking through, kept inside the polytunnel.

Tiny petunia seedlings. My first attempt at growing them from seed. They are tiny seeds, and tiny seedlings. So tiny I’m still not confident of success until they have developed their true leaves.

The sunny weather is bringing out flowers on the sugar snap peas that overwintered under fleece.
