It was good to get back out in the garden today after missing out last weekend to illness. It’s great that it’s warmed up a few degrees and been fairly dry. Managed to get loads of sowing done, sweetpeas (southbourne), peppers (denver F1), courgettes (Orelia F1), squash (scallop mixed), tomatoes (tumbling tom, marmande, gardeners delight, tomatillo), calabrese (aquiles F1) all in various trays, pots and toilet rolls on windowsills and in the greenhouse. On the plot I sowed carrots (javelot) and parsnips (exhibition), all in all a very satisfying afternoon.
Also stage 1 of my long carrot experiment is complete. I drilled a few holes in the bottom of two old dustbins and filled with sand. These are now settling as I wait for the key ingredients for my growing medium to arrive. Should be ready to get the bins prepared and seeds sown next weekend. Will get some more details and pics posted then.
