It's spring!

It’s spring in my head since the crocuses started to bloom on our windowsill. According to my “sowing-calendar” February is fine for getting the first seeds into the soil. Spinach, garlic, lambs’ lettuce and rucola are all ready to taste the fresh earth.
I spend a day building a cold frame and prepare three sowing beds to give my veggies a good start. Arnold thinks that our neighbors will now start worrying about our mental health – since my Dutch garden book doesn’t mention the option of having a freezing cold February with 20 cm snow….
