Welcome back, everybody! Thanks from us all to Barbara for organising a delivery of compost which arrived yesterday. This fortuitously coincided with a long-awaited change in weather, and the warmth and sunshine has brought many of us back to our plots in readiness for the new season. Carrots and leeks have survived the frost and snow, and the purple-sprouting broccoli has just started to sprout.

The end to lockdown is also in sight so hope – and spring – is in the air.
