    Nice one! I'm too wimpy for nagas, but yesterday I ordered some "Bolivian Rainbow" and "Bulgarian Carrot" chillies to try (nearer the jalapeno/thai types in hotness). I need small plants so that I can grow them in a dog cage in the conservatory - otherwise the cats eat the plants before they can even flower

    Today I was feeling rotten so I took the day off work and cheered myself up with some retail therapy. Ordered a large heated propagator for my toms, chillies, etc (just big enough for two seed trays), a seed packet tin (since my current CD storage box is heaving!) and a pair of deadhead snips that look ideal for harvesting beans

    Raining. Again. So no gardening - I managed to lose 40 in Wilkinson's though: and struggled home with planters, trays, trellis, poles, bulbs, netting and string a-plenty

    Today the electric propogater ordered of E bay arrived so i will be arranging my potted seeds, and getting some going in the propogator.
    After this im going to read the two veg growing mags i bought yesterday. Oh and file the free seeds away in my seed box.
    a good put down line to use !

    I have had to stake my early moon sowing tomatoes with little canes. Think they may be a bit leggy but there is no more light available!

    Today the sun was shining so I sorted out my compost bins and re-located them. Checked on my bagged up leaf mulch which is doing very nicely. Potted on my aubergines and some pulsatillas. Still looking for a spot to put my climbing bean planter. Checked on the wormery; worms seem to be getting big and fat despite the cold.
