More sowings and plantings....
I sowed these sweet peas back in February, they are starting to put on some serious growth now.
These are the greyound cabbages I sowed last week (or was it the week before?), and the leeks are starting to sprout now too, which were sown on the same day.
The Stevia (left) has grown a little bit - I have put the pots into a tub of water and I'm keeping them quite wet, which has given them a little boost. On the right are some Heatwave chillies, the first to germinate. And next to these, below, in the propogators are more chillies (in various stages of germination) and two lots of tomato - Ferline and Legend. Both are meant to be blight resistant, which is just as well as they are destined for the allotment.
Speaking of the allotment, still no sign of the broad beans. I'm getting a bit worried now. Perhaps they still need more of a chance. The garlic is doing great and the autumn planted onions not too bad. On Sunday I planted about 10 more rows of onion sets. I hope I haven't overdone it. The weeding is going to be a nightmare....
Other news: we have exchanged contracts on our new house, and have accepted an offer on this one!
