    Today I sowed some Celeriac 'Alabaster' seeds, (bit of a gamble as the seed is a bit out of date, but it has two chances?!) - also put some Parsnip 'Palace F1' seeds onto damp kitchen paper to 'pre-germinate', sowed some more Pigletwillie Banana Shallot seeds to make up numbers, because I've not been too successful with my germination rate so far, and a windowbox trough of Amsterdam Sweetheart Carrot seeds, for an early indoor crop in the conservatory..
    Because up until midday, Biodynamically, it was a root day.
    Then it was a Flower day from 1pm, and will be again tomorrow, so I are mostly going to be doing flower stuff tomorrow. I've got a rather loverly couple of Dahlia tubers to pot up, and a few whacky Crocosmia corms.
    Thank you for listening.

    Before leaving for work, I visited the greenhouse, picked up one of my Garland 7 propergators along with 7 trays & lids, took them into the kitchen, washed them & left them to dry. Can see some sowing going on over the weekend.

    What I did yesterday......

    Took delivery of my spuds and stuff from Tattieman. I was very excited but am a little worried that I may have gone overboard with the number I have ordered.......

    Had some more spuds turn up from Mr F.......oops....

    Levelled out the ecobase for the shed move in the garden (just need to dismantle the bugger and move it now - a job for next weekend I think.

    Yesterday I took delivery of my seed potatoes - Charlotte and Lady Crystle. I love Lady C as a salad potato - fantastic texture and flavour. As a second early my fave is Charlotte as you can leave a few in the ground and they will get big enough for that gourmet delicacy - New Potato Chips!
    Set them out in egg boxes to chit.

    Today I made a load of 2 tier staging for the polyshed out of roofing laths and saved £285 on aluminium ones of the same size.

    Default Isn't digging hard?

    After spending most of the day in the kitchen baking various bread based products, I decided I could no longer put off digging the new potato patch I have been promising myself.
    I haven't done any digging for a while because of my raised bed no dig system, so after removing the matted roots of the couch grass and dandelions from about one third of the planned area of what masquerades as a lawn, and my baldy head freezing (or too hot if I wore a hat), I gave up and came in for a cup of tea.
    At least I have started now so should, weather permitting, get it dug out and manured tomorrow.
