Spring has been as unpredictable as other recent ones. We have had almost no rain and a few very hot days… the warmest so far has been about 40C. The winter vegetables have finished, and even some of the springtime ones (broad beans and artichokes) stopped producing after the very hot days.
The ladybirds are back, though I haven't seen any white spiders yet.
It is also the season for seed saving… at least for those plants that produce in winter and "go to seed" as the weather warms up, but more of that later.
