Spring is around the corner

The January frost and snow has gone, but we’re still not out of the woods yet. Forecast has it cold and cloudy for the rest of the week.

We’ve been busy putting up the greenhouse in Ian’s garden.


We’ve fired up the heated propagators to start off some tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and Kelsae onions from seed.

I’ve also sold my larger greenhouse and started to move all the pots, plants and equipment down to the plot.


Hopefully next week the soil will start drying out so we can rake it to a tilth and get the first broad beans (Aquadulce) and early peas (Feltham First) sown. Will also get the onion sets sown in modules.
