This post is really a record for me to look back on to see where I was up to with seed sowing and growing.
This year I am growing a few flowers. These are two types of sweet pea, one called Bijou which needs no support and grows in a bush type way to go at the front door and the other to be planted our around the climbing peas.
Here are French marigolds to go around the climbing beans, if I can fit them between those and the squash! (I sowed a few extra of these today.)
I've also decided to give sunflowers another go as failed last year.
This is my first stab at spinach. I had it covered with fleece but have taken that off now as the Poly House is warming up a bit. Had the door open for a while yesterday because there was a lot of condensation.
Seeds for cress came in a multi pack so thought I'd give it a go.
I have three trays of beetroot and that is doing very nicely.
These are Golden Acre cabbages and hope to plant these out next month and they can hopefully be harvested from July onwards. They are described as being perfect to grow where you don't have too much space which is great for the bed I have designated for them along with broccoli.
Next up are one of the tomato varieties I will be growing and they are called Cuor di Bue -a kind of plum tomato.
