Days like this in January are gems. Saturday morning, not a breath of wind, unseasonably warm, dry and peaceful, can’t beat it. Wanted to stay all day but so little to do at this time of year. It is amazing though how many plants are already starting to show new growth. The rhubarb has sent up it’s first shoot. We’ve had this plant for two years now so I’m going to dig out the books when I get home to read about forcing it and see what we can do. All the fruit bushes and trees have buds on their stems so promises of great harvests to come. Of course we are bound to get some really cold weather yet but days like today get me all excited about planting and planning.
