Think spring...


When crocus bloom, it's close enough to spring to grab a spade and dig a few rows ready to embrace asparagus and spring onions, prepare flats to sow for transplants, check the seed inventory and order what may have been overlooked, or what new varieties might be tried, decide where to expand the garden this year (it's never quite big enough). One forgets over the frozen days just how lively fresh-turned earth smells when it meets the air.

It helps, of course, if you have a good supervisor.
