Planted loads of onions, 500gms Sturon, 250 gms Red Baron and 250gms, some just called. Red onion. They filled the whole of one of my new beds. Had to actually water the ground it's been so dry, seems crazy after all that rain.
Talked to all the other 'Lottie's' who had come out to play in the sun.
Now I is tired.DottyR

Planted out the overwintered cauliflowers and calabrese. Even if we do end up having a cold spell I'll just over them with fleece and hope for the best. Besides, I needed the greenhouse space for my new plants.
Then I moved the cherry toms into the greenhouse and sowed some more calabrese. Oh, and finally discovered that half of my broad beans have germinated in the raised bed outside. It's only taken them 26 days! Now to be patient and wait for the other ones to appear...

Just planted 10 pentland express spuds in two recycling bags, lots of different seed tomatoes, squash, peas all in plastic cups. Two to a sandwich bag, used bag tags to make mini greenhouses. They are on south facing windowsills nd condensating already. Is it ok to leave them like that until they germinate or do I have to let more air in?

Planted some red baron and sturton onions today and giggled away at the worms jumping out of the ground whilst doing it. The wee wrigglies never cease to make me smile. Strange, I know.When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it.
If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

Bit more digging to remove weeds and loosen the soil a bit. All the heavy rain over winter has really hammered my poor plot.

Spent a pleasant afternoon potting on my tomatoes and chilli peppers.
Potted up 12 fuschia plants and 18 petunias that i bought in Aldis last week.
Weather very disappointing, dull and overcast.
And when your back stops aching,
And your hands begin to harden.
You will find yourself a partner,
In the glory of the garden.

Had a lazy day! Potted on and top dressed a few of the "Overwintered Stuff" slowly bringing things back into life!
I love this time of year, expectations, and comes with it the trepidation's! what's made it through n what hasn't!
But it has been that mild a winter, I'm confused let alone the plants!"Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad"
