A few weeks ago I was at the library returning books when I happened to glance down at the open local newspaper on a table, staring me in the face was this:
they're so small but I now prefer to do it this way.
I suppose I should be called the impatient gardener because I love to see things grow quickly. This form of sowing means I can crack on with successional sowings because I can see when things have failed. The sunshine has been lovely but the breeze has been quite keen at times. The lawn is drying out very quickly and the edges are already turning hay coloured! Everything in the greenhouse is good, although I still think the tomatoes are small, I may have to buy a couple of more mature ones! The courgettes are in flower but all male flowers as normal to begin with, so no courgettes forming just yet. I kept the peppers in the conservatory because it has warmer overall temperatures. They will be put in the greenhouse before the end of the month.
Everything in the garden is looking rosy and I'm hoping for bumper crops this year that will help my budget. You can't beat garden to table in minutes!
How does your garden grow? I'll show you the peas and carrots in a couple of days time to see whether there is any progress. Plus the results of the successional sowings. Bye for now Tx
