Two or three beds had been cleared out which was nice to see. The down side is that they had filled my compost bin with grass which is about to seed everywhere.
As always my rhubarb and strawberry bed was choking
..........but it doesn't take long to give it some breathing space.
The mixed veg bed is truly that this year. I have a load of potatoes appearing from last year because we didn't clear it out properly so my salad crops are tucked in here and there and just growing around them, but it is working OK.

|rogue potatoes look good and healthy|
In the same sort of way I have dwarf beans planted with the raspberries. The raspberries will make a lot of runners this summer and probably fill the bed but until they do I may as well use the space. They look promising as they are loaded with potential berries.

the beans look just fine

While we were there I got Ken to shove in some supports for the raspberries - not sure what that achieves....
