Potager Garden: Raised bed building, courgette flower buds and maple-pickled shallots

News from our garden is that yesterday the weather was beautiful so my husband and children built our first raised bed for the garden, ready to be put in place this weekend…

… the parsnips have all germinated this morning, the carrot seedlings are just starting to show and the peppers continue to thrive.

Our nine year old son’s courgette plants have now got little flower buds on them…

… and it was two weeks from preserving the shallots so we finally got to try them, and they were delicious!  I’ll try and get the recipe for “chilli and maple pickled shallots” up on the website really soon.

I hope everyone else’s gardens are going well now spring is very much underway 🙂
