March 30th – The day was a little more summery than that previously and on my way home I nipped up the canal to see if the field of oilseed rape was out yet at Home Farm.
It’s getting there, it’s getting there. About another week to ten days, depending on how warm and sunny it is.
I love the smell, the colour and the spectacle of the sun-loving brassica. A real sign summer is coming!
