Visiting Piglet Willie and pricking out

On Saturday 28th I visited Piglet Willie and was also taken to see the lotties. Very interesting, and great soil after years of hard work. 
I was given plenty of goodies, seedlings, seeds, a redcurrant, salsa, chilli sauce, and a winter squash. Yum yum. Plus a fabulous lunch and home made cookies.

On the Sunday, I pricked out the Pointy Sweet Peppers that he gave me, and there are 42 of them. All have moved well and are looking perky. I'll spread them around the village and amongst friends once they are big enough to go into their own pots. 

I have also sowed some Rose de Roscoff onion seeds.
