What's happening in the garden?

The Almond tree has burst into flower! eek

With the ground damp from rain I've been scattering seeds around the edge beds...Calendulas, Anise Hyssop, Italian Parsley, while Dandelion seed heads have been dispatched to the chicken runs where any new seedlings will be gobbled up before the have a chance to get very big! smile

The first of the newly planted peas are popping the Dwarf Blue Bantam Peas in the wicking tub (C) are just popping up so too are the Angela's Blue Climbing Peas on the fenceline.

Potting up and Planting out:
Divided and put into a container, some newly sprouting Lemon Balm from the Tank Bed by the Main Veg Garden chookrun gate.

Planted the two Blackcurrant bushes in the Almond area.
