Is the Wait Over?

The weather wasn't bad for Monday and Tuesday with more sunshine than forecast.

Things are moving on quickly on the plot now. Those potatoes’ flower buds in my last post are now open and one of our other potato varieties, Marfona, is starting to form flower buds too.  

It’s almost a month since we harvested any fruit or vegetables from the plot. We usually manage a better supply through winter. I suppose we could have harvested some rhubarb over the last few weeks but certainly we had no other crops to pick. The signs are that the wait for some produce will soon be over. On Tuesday we picked our first few strawberries of the season.
Not many as you can see but 141 gms or 5 oz of absolutely superb tasting strawberries.  We're hoping that this is just the start of a good harvesting season.
