3 Cucumber seeds germinated, I'll squeeze them into the greenhouse somehow. Just 3 Aubergine seedlings appeared and 6 Pepper seedlings, all are still tiny.
Then it was time for a bit more sowing so into the propagator went Basil, Parsley and a few more Aubergines from a new packet. Plus Courgette and Climbing French Beans and Nasturtium in the greenhouse.
The mass of green seedlings in modules are a wild flower mix that Col bought. He has got them going nicely and will then plant the whole clump from each module out onto the meadow. Persuading wild flowers to grow from seed can sometimes be difficult but these are looking good. We'll see what happens when they go out. Also in the picture are some Sunflower seeds which have their two seed leaves and Sweet Pea seeds ......doing nothing as yet. Lettuce seeds are being difficult this year so I picked up a tray of small plants from QD last time I was in Stowmarket.
We've had one bed covered with black plastic most of the winter and the soil underneath was dry and warm so the first sowing of beetroot is in the ground and now re-covered with a plastic cloche for a few days.
Next door-but-one neighbours brought round an old box pallet to cut up for our wood-burner but Col decided to save the bottom half, line it out and use it for a raised bed........somewhere?
