    Mine also went in the greenhouse yesterday. Can't bear to see an empty windowsill so I've started more Chilli & Pepper, also Cauli seeds on kitchen paper. Maybe a bit early for Cauli but we'll see.

    I've sown a tray of Marco and a tray of red baron, they are on a window sill so hopefully will be ok. I'll move them to the tent cloche and cover with fleece once they are big enough. I need more window sills.

    Will move mine off the heat tomorrow as they are at least an inch high.Will have a look to see how much root they have made and may well pot them on into 2.5" pots.

    Can I start off some leeks or is it too early?

    Sowed about 50 to 60 Golden Bear onion seeds today in modules. Still have half the packet left for a later sowing.
    They will now go in propagator on my bedroom windowsill.

    I grew Golden Bear last year because of there disease resistance. I grew them in an area affected with onion white rot as a trial and none of them succumbed. They were on the small side though, so this year I've sowed them early to hopefully get rteasonable sized bulbs.
    Don't think I'll bother with the large Kelsae onions from seed this year as they take up a lot of ground space ( at least 12 inches apart for decent sized bulbs) and don't really keep well.

    Whilst I was in the greenhouse with the woodburner making it nice and warm, I transplanted two large moduled trays of the vegetatively produced leeks I've grown from grass. They are good sturdy plants from a show leek strain.

    Of course it's not too early. New Years Day is the traditional time for sowing show leeks!
