We have growth

The reinventors have been trying to put off working in the garden in favour of getting the house ready.  Which was a good idea, but the weeds and mud and lack of things to eat has gotten to both of them.  So there have been a couple of forays into the soil. 

 The broadbeans have sprouted.

 Marmalade Cottage will have tangeloes, which make superior marmalade.

 The cavalo nero survived being dug up, roughly potted, then replanted.

 Marmalade Cottage will have lemons in a couple of years.  In the meantime the lovely neighbours have been bringing over great bags to keep the reinventors going.

An experiment - a male and female kiwifruit.  One male will, apparently, fertilise up to eight females, but there simply isn't enough space.  Sometime very soon, they will need a strong trellis.
