Sowing and pricking out

Today I
Tomatoes: Scotia, Maja, Silver Fir Tree all bush tomaotes - for school donated to me by a chum from a couple of seed saving circles
Onions: Valencia and Prebosa - both bought in Spain last autumn.


Pricked out/potted on:
A - Piglet Willie's French Black Tom
B - Maskotka Bush Tomato
1 - Purple Beauty Sweet Pepper
2 - Chocolate Sweet Pepper
3 - Chocolate Habanero Chilli Pepper

The above are numbered 1,2,3 etc for peppers and A,B,C etc for toms so that I can cut down on writing labels all the time

Just out in the garden for a bit yesterday - the Hellebores are out and looking fantastic - if you are a borrower or leprechaun that is. So, I popped the camera on the ground and took some photos whilst they are still out. Lovely!

Seed Sowing

Well, I sowed a few more - just some Phacelia and Sanguina Beetroot [from self saved seeds]; got waylaid in the greenhouse depodding some Fenugreek and Golden Sweet Mange Touts from last summer and potting up Broad Beans and Peas from the Vermiculite Germination from last time.
