Springtime at Colliwat

Spring has been gaining momentum over the last few weeks.  The vegies are all producing nicely and flowers are coming into bloom left, right and centre.  Some unusual spring rain about a week ago really got everything growing.  Here are some photos of what's currently in the potager and some of the flowers that are out.  More flowers are in bud so we will have some more for you very soon.  

Borlotti beans - no beanfly so far
Broccolini flowers

Peas - took a while to get started
Root crops - schallots, garlic, beetroot, swedes and carrots
