...... or I spy with my little eye something beginning with P!!!!
(Cold frame made from recycled wood by my lovely boyfriend )
It must be getting warmer because the Peas are up and I've been busy planting seeds!!!!!
Update from 22.02.09
Peas: Feltham First
Planted last November these are growing nicely in the coldframe! Harvest should be ready for harvest at the start of May - August. More can be own now (Mar - May) for a longer harvest.
November I planted cloves from a supermarket bulb, these are now 6 inch high shoots! The recent frosts / snow should be great for splitting the bulb into cloves.
The spuds I planted last year were dug up by the kids (searching for worms!) so I planted more today.
Lettuce: Unwins Organic Cut & Come Again :
Planted indoors in two drills will be ready for harvest May - Oct. Can be planted outside April - July. I'll be re planting every 3 weeks to ensure a continuous crop.
Carrots: Early Nantes 2
Planted 6" in the coldframe, these are old seeds so not sure if they'll germinate?
Summer Cabbage: Primo
The seeds I planted last year inside (wrong time!!) are looking long and leggy but green, I think I might scrap those and put them in a stir-fry and start again. I can sow more inside this month or outside in April. Harvest Jul - Aug.
Runner beans: nursery buy from last year
Sown inside, in recycled loo rolls! We'll plant these
Onions: nursery buy from last year
The sets are growing nicely in the trough, putting up shoots, twigs in the mud seem to be keeping cats / birds off!!
I've decided we need some flowers in the garden as well!
French Marigolds: Marionette Mixed
Companion planting to keep the pests off the veggies!
12 seeds planted in the propogator on the living room windowsill. Several have sprouted within the week!!
Nasturtiums: Maharajah mixed
Edible beauties to cheer up our salads!
Planted in propogator. None sprouted yet!
Loads more seeds in the basket to plant but not ready yet!!!!
