Here Comes the Sun…Permaculture Smallholding, Ireland

It’s time to start sowing seeds, especially if you have a propagator. Light has returned and there is a definite stretch in the days.

The signs of spring are to be found everywhere. Daffodils are up really early and buds are starting to thicken on the lower bushes.

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was within me an invincible summer.”
– Albert Camus

The Blackbird sits atop the Ash tree in the hedge, enjoying the morning sun.

Lots of food remains in the tunnel. If you grow anything this year, let it be Chard…so very easy to grow and so full of vitamins. It’s colourful and looks lovely planted in flower beds and pots!

In a matter of weeks, the orchard will break into blossom and all will be the promise of abundance! It’s not too late to plant apple and pear trees.
