Pomegranites everywhere. Our first bag has appeared on the doorstep. They are difficult to clean but worth the effort. I usually juice them but have made pomegranite liqueur and love to just chew on a handful of nice cold seeds.
Yesterday the grandchildren with me directing planted onions and lettuces. Last night we had a nice gentle rain fall. Today the sun is shining. What wonderful growing weather.
Grandchildren come in handy for heavy jobs. They got down the heavy cases of winter clothes from the top of the wardrobe, brought in the outdoor TV (summer is over), cleaned under the beds (small children love to roll around in dark, dusty places), hoed and planted. Great kids.

Last year I planted pansies amongst the lettuces and loved the combination. I just might buy some pansy plants this year too. My grandmother always had a border of pansies around her garden. Their bright, jolly 'faces' give cheer on a winter's day.
