Spring is starting to spring

There's been some really good rain, and some lovely sunshine.
This is what happens:
The kaffir lime that looked terminally ill decided it liked being in the ground and rewarded us with lovely, glossy black foliage.
The new mulberry tree that arrived as a couple of bare branches has erupted with leaves and baby fruit.

Meanwhile the broadbeans are nearly 10cm tall and vigourous and the cavalo nero (black Tuscan kale) that was roughly dug up from the last garden, dumped into pots, then replanted, has gotten over its shock and is also vigourously growing.

To add to that, the reinventors have planted garlic, artichoke, parsley, sweet peas and assorted herbs.

We will have a harvest this year.
