    Aiming to sow chillies, toms and shallots in paper pots in the kitchen this week. And leeks and early peas in the unheated greenhouse once the temp improve.

    Chillies, leeks, spuds are chitting (Pentland Javelin and Robinta)

    Also some foxgloves.

    All are in the house at the moment but will be transfered to the greenhouse as soon as reasonable.
    The weeks and the years are fine. It's the days I can't cope with!

    chillis, peppers, aubergines, strawberries, onions, maybe a few caulis if I get round to buying some seeds (too cold to go out yet ) and a few toms. I really should get my leeks started as I haven't had much luck for the past 2 years! Not 1oo% sure what I should sow them in for best results.

    I will be sowing chillis, tomatoes and aubergines tomorrow.

    Last weekend I got herbs sown in (windowsill) pots, russian tarragon, sage, red basil and chives - tarragon has already germinated, as have the chives

    As a newish grower, could I suggest it would be helpful if the poster states if they are sowing indoors in seed trays or modules, or straight into the growing position.

    I have sowed indoors tomato Roma VF and Jalapeņos
    Also aiming to do onion and leek seeds indoors next weekend
    Aubergines indoors also next weekend
    Caulis and cabbage indoors -week 3

    Garlic and shallots and parsnips direct into ground when I can see the ground again

    You don't want to be sowing parsnips directly for quite a while yet as the ground will be far too cold until about March (year and area dependent). Last year I sowned mine a week or so into April and they've done great. Had a lovely sweet parsnip soup yesterday and if I can ever find the ground again then I'll pull some more up. If you want to get a head start on them then you can sow on paper or in root trainers / loo rolls but in my opinion it's far too early yet and you'll just be wasting your time.

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?
