    What I Did Today?

    Posted first post on the 'Vine (Hello all Grapes) -

    http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gra...bie_11978.html


    Still haven't been to allotment this year

    But did look at all seeds I have got - and the catalogues for those I want!

    I went to Wilko's - has anyone bought Seed Potatos from there? they are about 3.00 for 3 kilos - not bad I thought, but hey - I'm a newbie!

    Will have to start things at the weekend!

    Well today was a real improvement on the last few days. We actually saw a bit of sunshine today. It was an ideal day for being out in the garden but unfortunately i had to bring my mother to the hospital. By the time i got back it was rather late. However i did get to the greenhouse where i sowed my first lot of peas (ONward) into my saved toilet rolls. I also sowed some red onion seed. It was lovely to be able to get back to doing something garden related after all the bad weather.

    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,

    I finally got to prune my strawberry beds and moved all of the marshmello to another plot, planting them through membrane.

    The raised bed that was freed up has now got two herb wheels in it and is now ready to plant up with the 20 odd pots of herbs we have sown, propogated or bought.

    I actually got round to sorting my seeds out, in date order. which was quite a feat. Cos i'm a bit of a seedaholic, and had more packets than i thought, but i did manage to squeeze them in a large shoe box, minus the lid LoL.
    Also noticed my arun pilot seed spuds have begun to shoot, thats a miracle in itself. Sitting in a very cold dark garage was the last place i'd expect them to start chitting. Oh well, Time to get the egg boxes out. YAY

    My seed potatoes from T&M arrived and are now nestling in their egg boxes in the spare room. One of the packs of 5 spuds (I tried a couple of different earlies for growing in pots) only contained 4. I have emailed but not worth the postage to send back. I wonder what they'll do?
    Made biscuits for Choral Society practice tonight. I'll never slim down will I?

    I sowed some chili seeds, I seem to have 9 varieties, a couple were freebies. not sure what on earth I will do with them all as I have loads left from last year, but still fancied trying different types this year. I have only sown half in case they don't do well. also I moved my sweet peas out into my lovely new greenhouse. noticed snowdrops and crocus out in my garden :-)

    Went for a lovely but cold walk today and saw snowdrops also along the side of the road, it brought a smile to my face. At last signs of spring bring it on I say .......
