Even in the midst of Winter there are signs of life on the allotment. The new raspberry canes I planted in Autumn are showing some new shoots.
Rhubarb is also daring to poke its head above the soil.
I must give this patch a couple of inches of compost to feed it for next year. I still have the old mound that I created for my giant pumpkin last year. I will fork it all over and make a mound on my rhubarb.
And meanwhile in the greenhouse, quite a few of my Bishop's Kiss chillis are still hanging on in there while the plants have died back. A welcome flash of colour at a dull time of year.
