Start of Spring maybe ?

While at the Allotment today I realised we still had a row of Kerrs Pink potatoes in the ground, they were planted exactly 8 months ago on 21st June 2015! 

But still firm and we are having them roasted for Sunday dinner along with Parsnips too. Had dinner and the roasties were lovely.
Remember we cut down that Laylandii tree, well I cleared a space and made a log pile as they need to be seasoned/dried for at least 2 years before burning in a log burner stove. 

It will become a wildlife haven in the mean time.
As I said could it be the start of Spring? Well its been mild and sunny, even the rain kept off, so we got lots done. 
Made a start on clearing a raised bed ready for more Strawberries & cleared the Greenhouse.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
