The recent warm weather seems to have helped some of the seedlings grow. Photo above taken 11 April 2011. Photo left taken 3 weeks later, 2 May. I find this change in the plants quite amazing. Variety: Bean 'Dwarf Purple Queen', Mr Fothergills, 100 seeds £2.35

I wish I'd grown more Calendula. The edible flower petals will look good in salad this summer. Variety: Calendula 'Orange King', Carters Tested Seeds, 150 seeds, 79pence. Sown: 18 March 2011.
The rhubarb speaks for itself!
