Weeding the vegetable patches

It's been an amazingly warm day.  I have just spent three hours weeding the more important vegetable patches.  After a few very cold and wet weeks, a couple of lovely warm days have been very timely and mostly an opportunity to remove a lot of very healthy weeds.  The various garden plots have differing needs, but weeding is for everywhere at this time of the year.
 The garlic has some new seaweed mulch and are looking healthy...
 The smelly bucket of fertiliser (made with chicken poo and stinging nettles) is really productive....


The echinacea continues to flower....

 ... and while weeding I found this little plant (a cobra lily) that has survived a transplant and a serious frost last week. Hopefully it will increase in this new spot.

The rue plant is flowering profusely.  It doesn't very much bothered by the frost last week.
