    - started some true potato seed off in a damp saucer, just to see what happens
    - sowed onion seed (Kelsae & Rijnsburger) into 3" pots in heated propagator (Kelsae appeared 11 Jan)
    - moved the sprouted garlic out of heated prop and onto cool windowsill

    Brought in some compost from the freezing shed to warm up. I hope to feel motivated to sow some onions tomorrow!

    Put some leek seeds in zip lock bag with perlite & compost. First attempt with bags so fingers crossed. Put early toms in greenhouse (were around 1" high). May have slipped up with the cauli seeds I put on kitchen roll last week, they have started germinating & not quite sure what to do once ready to pot on. Guess it will be the GH along with everything else.......

    i planted onion seeds, tomatoes, peppers and leeks today. all in the propogator. tempted to sow more but nowhere to germinate so will have to learn patience me thinks! either that or buy another propogator!

    and i tried to get into the old GH but the door is frozen solid.

    here's what Fife looks like today...

    Not today but yesterday. Cleared out and tidied up my 3 raised beds. Put stable manure on each raised bed and then covered all three with plastic. Pruned grape vine. Checked lemon grass that I had divided at the end of last year and re-potted in mini gh, they seemed to be doing fine. Then came back indoors as frozen and ordered seed potatoes and a variety of other veg seeds.

    It looks very pretty in Fife, but maybe not so good for gardening .

    I lined my eaves cupboard in my bedroom with reflective foil to make a light box to grow my chillies in. Good job I'm small, OH said he'd never have managed to get in there! I'm testing the temperature tonight, last night it went down to 5C, it was very frosty outside, and forecast to be low again tonight, so it will be a good test to see if I've managed to insulate it better, before my tender darlings move in. Might be a slow death anyway if the lights I got aren't bright enough
    I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!
