This Week in the Garden: Checking in on New Autumn Direct-Sow Seedlings

Our autumn/winter garden is sprouting to life, with the two weeks since sowing generously offering plenty of sunshine as well as much needed rain. As always, the radishes were the first to sprout and are growing quickly while the other ground crops like carrot, onion, parsnip, leek and beetroot are still in their infancy.  The peas are coming up nicely for a sneaky autumn crop. The broad beans were (surprisingly) a little slow to start, but have made up for it by expanding at a lightening pace. They aren't my favourite edible, but you really can't beat it for a winter garden around here and are good for the soil, so broad beans it is! What's happening in and around your garden this week?  Whatever your garden/green news, we would love to hear about it. Please leave a comment or post us a message on the GiRL Facebook page I look forward to sharing our garden with you as it grows.   Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

P.S. I recently shared on Twitter/Facebook that I have a large mysterious white flower looking quite happy and healthy in my flower bed - can anyone identify it?  It appears to be some sort of spreading groundcover. Hehe. :)
