    Oh my – I am SO jealous.

    Planted my crowns out a couple of weeks ago (I know, I know, I’m behind with the blog update!), so that pic will be mine in about 3 years time…

    Mouthwatering. I too am jealous. One day…

    Oh wow, is that yours Nic? Congratulations, it looks fantastic. We started a small asparagus bed last year, but I think it’s going to take a couple of years yet before we get anything we can eat.

    Where’s the Hollendaise sauce?

    Hi Nic, nothing arouses so much pleasure and pride as the first asparagus spears! We have had a few these past week or so too.
    Have a lovely Easter.

    Lucky lucky you. I won’t show this photograph to my husband, he will be soooo jealous.

    Jane – me too, this beauty belongs to my neighbour (or belonged as being the first spear I’m sure it was scoffed long ago). His asparagus bed is the envy of the plot

    Janet – my sentiments exactly, one day. And if I’d acted on that when I first thought it I’d have a beautifully established bed by now!

    Choc – at least a couple of years I read and while it’s tempting to pick the spears that form in the early years it’s worth resisting for the good of future harvests apparently

    Tom – mmm, or deliciously soft boiled egg for dipping

    Peggy – and now I am jealous – I may have a nice picture but you have real spears. Enjoy x

    MC – I see an asparagus post coming up to set the record straight!

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
