But that's not what I wanted to talk to you about. Not yet, anyway.
I'm here to show you our mini plant nursery, which is what my kitchen now has been promoted to.
The upside down plastic boxes are to protect the seedlings from ...
...these two on the right.
The pumpkin seeds have sprung and are growing at triffid speed.
Rouge Vif d'Etampes
Left : squash Futsu. Right : yellow and green courgette.
Crystal Lemon cucumber in the front and only two Tuffy squash plants
More courgettes that I've sown last week. A small variety of white colour.
Bianca di Trieste
The broad beans have come on in leaps and bounds.
I've now placed them in our homemade cold frame for another week and then they can be planted out.
I've placed the potted cutting of a lilac tree in the cold frame as well.
It had overstayed its welcome in the kitchen. Not really, but it should also find its final place in the garden soon.
While I was outside I took a peek into the cloches that protect the recently transplanted strawberries.
And they're doing just fine.
And this is what I have to deal with when trying to measure, calculate, cut, pin and sew.
Till next time.
