White rabbits!

Yes, the days are getting longer and I have seen sunlight outside working hours, all this must mean it is spring. We had a nice cold winter, but now we’re all a bit sick of it now.

In particular, I want to try and get my hands on some sea kale, not sure how I’m going to get hold of some. Advice please!
