Sowing frenzy

correct use of a seed potato?

(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
  • Carrots
  • Spring onions
  • Leaks
  • 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.


Jersey Royals

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.
