(the correct use of a seed potato)
Just a list of what I sowed yesterday/today
- Ammi Majus. Bishops Flower
- Bupleurum Griffith
- Runner beans
- Ballotti beans
- Spring onions
- Purple sprouting broccoli
- Brussel sprouts
and a few other things that have germinated.
- Helianthus Sunflower Earthwalker
- Ricinus Impala
- Cerinthe Major Purpurascens
The cold frame is filling up nicely.
I also planted out 10(ish) broad bean plants. I’ll pop some seeds straight in in a week or so, hopefully we’ll have loads of beans (great on toast :). We had problems with black fly last year so I’ll need to keep an eye on them.
Ian & Diane’s plant stall… a sure sign that spring is here… some good looking Rhubarb and Armeria (aka thrift) on there.
Fantastic looking Ricinus Impala seeds from Higgledy Garden, I planted these today, but got distracted so didn’t mange to get the rest in.
The Strawberries, Gooseberries and Raspberries looking good, all mulched up 🙂
oh yeah and look at that, I forgot the Rhubarb.
just planted out the Jersey Royals (or International Kidney as they are known everywhere else but Jersey). I had a bit of help from Jesse and Gabe.
Its been sunny all day so me and Anj managed a bit of gardening too, tidying up and weeding mostly (bloody Ground Elder). I think I might have over done the trimming of the grasses it’ll be interesting to see how well they recover.
Another great day, it was sunny and we did a lot of playing. Sticks were involved at some point and the inevitable injuries did occur.
I also managed to do a bit of gardening, mainly some weeding and got a bit of mulch down around the Raspberries and Strawberries. We are going to net them all this year so I’m hopeful for a bumper crop.
