Slow painting

The blackcurrants appear to have taken. The photo is a bit fuzzy, but in the flesh they're defintely bursting with fresh new growth.
The onions are pulling away. I've only just discovered that they need a period of cold weather after planting to establish good roots. Not sure if normal Scottish spring temperatures count as cold weather.

And the shallots are doing their usual trustworthy stuff, looking very pleasing.

Some of last year's garlic didn't get dug up, and has started to sprout long green spikes. I dug them up to make room for something else, and have been using them in cooking. They have a more delicate garlic flavour than the mature cloves, and have been good value in stir fries.
