      Anyone started mizuna outside yet or is it too early in my part of the world? Heard it doesn’t mind cold. Could start in the gh but I’d probably rather wait and sow direct if i can sow in March.

        Sowed more Meteor peas on Friday and planted the rest of the onion sets yesterday.

          I've lobbed some peas (Meteor) borad beans (the sutton) , Lettuce (little Gem, lollo rosso), Radish (Purple ?spanish place), Spring onion (white lisbon), Beetroot (bolthardy), Cabbage (greyhound) all in modules over the last two weeks.

          Sticking my radish out under fleece today. Following Dowding methods. I've covered half the plot in card and compost.. Run out of funds atm for more. I have homemade I will use, it just takes a long time to sift it as I chucked everything in there haha.

                    - Second Batch of Broad Beans (suttons) in a pot in the green house to transfer in a month or so to the raised bed, sowed some beetroot direct.
                    Today
                    Chillies - Thai Super Chillies F1, Lemon Drop, Choc Hab (definitely too late but was on autopilot and realised I didn't sow them when I sowed my Red Habs in Jan)
                    Sweet Pepper - (look like corni di toro but they're not) Sweet Deaux maybe?
                    Tomatoes - San Mazarno, Beef Master and Sweet Million.

                    Planning on getting some leaves started in tubs in the greenhouse when this storm passes and some Pak Choi in pots to transfer into the RB to hopefully pick early year before the squshes and sweet corn go in.

                        Sowed a 2m gutter of peas today (45 seeds), Oregon Sugar Pod. I had pre-sprouted them, so they should all come up.
                        I also put 50 or so more peas (Delikett, this time) to sprout, ready to plant up in a few days time.

                              Sowed a range of cut and come again leaves of varying textures and colours today. Will hopefully make a nice salad for some spring barbeques when we can have friends round.
