We’ve battened down the hatches recently, so not much to show that’s growing to eat. But the snowdrops are pushing their heads out again, which is always a joy to see.

Took this photo of the seed heads on our sweet cicely plants.

Sweet cicely is a great plant to add to sweet dishes to save adding so much sugar and has a wonderful aniseedy taste

Brian came upon an unusual visitor in the polytunnel on Friday – a tawny owl, who must have followed a mouse in, but then couldn’t quite work out how to get out again.

Help was at hand when our neighbour came over to help shoo.
