It’s been so wet I’ve not put any peas in the ground yet, but I think I will try this week to put some in a gutter in the greenhouse and get going that way. First spuds hopefully in the ground next month also.
For the first year I will have a Greenhouse, and coupled with a Heated Propagator with lights (Geopod if anyone is interested) I sowed the tomato, cucumber and pepper seeds this morning - the kids chose their own favourites from last year to grow so will have their own plants and hopefully keep an interest for them. Will do a second sowing in 4 weeks or so for backup and comparison.
Tomatoes were - from last year’s seed - Green Zebra, Black Russian, ‘Medium Pink Tom’ and Yellow Bell \ Pear, from my Spanish Uncle in Law, Picon, Rosa and Tumaco and from seed packets Sungold and The Amateur (the latter is new to me).
Cucumbers were La Diva and Burpless, Peppers were Marconi and Colour Rainbow, both first for me.
Have essentially done 4 seeds for each hopefully getting at least 2 plants for each variety.
Anyone else got anything going yet?
I probably need to start some Leeks and Broccoli soon but need to check sowing times - I’ve started a very large spreadsheet!
