OH hospitalised last night due to high blood pressure - baby Niamh due to make her appearance a week on Sunday. Thye let OH home this evening - next check up on Thursday ! So not much going on workwise - got another 4 box orders yesterday -= 49 a week now. This weeks boxes will contain potatoes, carrots, onions, cabbage, leeks, swedes and sprout tops.
sown lots of herbs today hope they go ok in the polly tunnel. cant wait till they start growing.
I cracked last night, just saw that packet of mini peppers sat there and it was talking to me, sow me, sow me... so being a gardener of little brain I succumbed! Just had to sow a dozen california wonder at the same time.
This may not be quite as daft though as it first seemed.. having had a good nose through lots of the forum posts yesterday they all seemed to be saying that peppers really need a good early start. I figure that we are nearly into February
Whent down the Plot today not good lost all our sprin cabadges
not shore if this has worked I can not see them in the preview???
have to ask Mrs D
It's week 4 and managed to get a little bit more done in the garden.... the really good news is that the first of the strawbs have started sprouting today :-) they are so tiny though, pricking them out could be a little tricky.... having heard stories of 2-3 weeks germination and low germination rates I'm really encouraged by this positive start.
Emptied out a third of the compost bin into the new bed at the weekend, quite impressed with the apparent quality
