    Hooookay.. I'll be sowing:

    Kale.
    Baby Carrot (ideal) - for us in containers, apparantly v.fast cropping & can be sowed from Jan onwards.
    Turnips.
    French Beans (I think they are anyway) - probably this weekend.

    I've also done some parnsips (4 different ways - chitting on wet cotton (no kitchen roll!) on a plate covered with clingfilm in the kitchen (light), and again in the airing cupboard (dark), direct sowed, and also in toilet rolls in a heated propagator). Never grown them before, but after searching the forums I've seen so many people have issues with them I thought I'd try every method!

    In propagator on window sill - tomatoes, peppers, alpine strawberries and basil
    In unheated greehouse (first year with GH so bit of a trial) - peas, broad beans, onion sets, shallot sets,marigolds, nasturtiums, sweet peas
    In root trainers but in sheltered bit of garden - garlic (ground not ready yet)
    Planted some fruit trees and bushes

    This month so far (i.e today!) i have sown Teasel, Sweetpeas, Beef tomato, Basil & Cosmos. Lots more to be sown but going to try & do it in little batches & not all at once like i normally do & flood the greenhouse, kitchen, spareroom etc etc with seed trays!

    I'll be sowing peas and planting my spuds under fleece. As I am out of the country from March 26th to April 14th I'll wait with everything else thereafter.

    I'm going to try tomorrow planting onion sets in modules to start them off before planting out on the lottie.

    Never tried this before, but it worth a go
