Everything is growing!!

Sorry I haven't posted for a while. Having moved house and bought a new car I've been delayed on the blog front so I'm a bit behind! Luckily - Karl has been an eager beaver and has been busy tidying up the plot by digging and planting. He's done a stunning job and everything is starting to pop up! :)
The broadbeans that I planted are about a foot high already - incredible! I've plonked in a few more seeds where some failed to grow. The shallots are sprouting nicely...we had fun keeping these seeds in the ground as the birds kept pulling them up! (Mistaken identity for a worm we think!) Turnips are coming up but the moluscs are having fun snacking on these as they're right by a wooden step which I think the sluggys sleep in. They're the first thing they see when they wake up! :(
The brocolli has gone to seed with lots of small yellow flowers and the strawberries have flowered too. Even the carrots by the greenhouse are doing rather well and you can just see their tips poking through! Apples are starting to grow too....the joys of spring!
