In the Green house this week I will be mainly......



Sowing Seeds....

We have had 3 lovely warm days so far this week so,I repaired my Green house door glazing,the wind had blown it clean off,it landed on the ground and smashed three panes of glass,so I bought some Silver tape and stuck some clear thick polythene over it and its done the job great (got really hot in there today). I potted some Broadbeans up a few weeks ago (Red Epicure) into toilet roll tubes,they are coming up nice now.
I potted,2 different variety of peas: Misty and Kalvedon Wonder,Butterhead lettuce, that I brought back from Greece,(yeah I know, very sad, I actually found a shop that sells seeds on a tiny Greek Island). Kidney Beans (Minnie),and re potted my Fig Tree (Brown Turkey).

I have decided to grow 2 different Potatoes this year (1st earlies,Maris Bard and 2nd earlies,King Edwards)which are chitting on the kitchen window as I speak,they have been there about 3 weeks.


I have a few things on the boil now so to speak, things are coming along nicely,the nights are still freezing but all my seed trays are all nicely wrapped up in bubble wrap all snug and warm ready to spring to life very soon.
hurry up Spring where are you?

I saw a wren up the allotment today, it was only about 4ft away from me whilst I was weeing, I hope it wasn't after worms!!! I got some leg ring but I may need your help in putting them on. Damaclees may have to go into the pot, far too agressive. Like sum Accrington drunk!
