On another scorching day I make a start on planting up the vine bed. Donated ‘spares’ of tomatoes have saved the day plus the squash, cuces and peppers which were all started indoors weeks ago……….it finally feels like the garden is taking shape. A huge thank you to all my plot friends who gave me their spare tomato plants – the girls came good!
When it’s raining cats and dogs and rather chilly outside there’s only one thing for it – play with the indoor sown seedlings. The peppers and celeriac sown six weeks ago are big enough now to move onto the next stage……bigger pots.
The season is gradually gearing up…….seed sowing and pricking out become the perfect rainy day activity. Today’s sowing session includes one of my most important and loved crops…..the tomatoes.
