A walk in the spring garden

Spring is such an exciting season! There are tons of trees & plants flowering, seeds are germinating left, right & centre, the hills and paddocks are lusciously green, the garden is overgrown with grass and weeds, but soon there will be a little order in this chaos.

The garlic is doing extremely well. Some stems are unbelievably thick. All going well, the harvest should be good.The leek bed is still filled with thick-stemmed leeks and self-sown leek seedlings. I shall eat the grown-ups and thin out the babies.
The red currants are doing their thing again. Tons of flowers and fruit setting. Red currant jelly for all these roasts and sauces...
The white strawberries are flowering and have already set lots of fruit. These are very small berries but packed with flavour.
The new row of peas is doing well. Hopefully they'll give us lots of sweet, tender peas.There is so much more going on, but that's enough for today. I shall take you on another walk very soon. Hope all of you are having a wonderful spring! :)

Wonderful to see, especially the garlic. Not yet warm enough to plant out much here yet - but some of the seeds planted in pots inside have finally "sprung" after 3+ weeks. I guess is just a "stroppy downunder spring" plus Wellington sultry weather as usual!

Good to hear your seeds are coming to life, Mickle! It's always exciting to sow and watch the seedlings pop up. :)

gosh our garden is still trying to draw breath - just starting to get going. We have red currents setting but our garlic and leeks are still small. Need a bit more warm sun I reckon!

Next week will be warm again! So your garden should be rocking!

What do you usually do with your red currants, Umatji?
