Achocha Lady’s Slipper (cyclanthera pedata)
I haven't sown these this year yet - I have grown them before so I will sow them with some students after half term
Babington Leek (allium ampeloprasum babingtonii)
Egyptian Walking onion Catawissa allium cepa proliferum
the Babington Leeks and EWOs are in my Hugelkultur bed - and the Stamme onions are in my Gertrude Franck bed and all are looking good. Some of the Babington and EWOs were given to my good chum for her plot.
Not sown these, I am going to save them for an undercover winter 2012/13 crop
Cherokee Trail of Tears
Swedish One Dot
The climbers and will be sown next week and grown up my Munty Frames - I still have work to do on getting the frames all back up again this year. Magpie, Edamame and Swedish One Dot were sown yesterday and are in the Gertrude Franck bed.
Mrs Connell’s Black
Will be sown in a week for a later Runner Bean harvest
I have sown some of these at one of my schools, and the teachers are looking forward to using the cobs for art next term. The problem with schools and sweetcorn is that they generally aren't there when it matures so we sow it later for a Sept crop - but these guys finish earlier so we opted for the decorative type.
Quillquiña = Bolivian Coriander
Turkish Rocket (Bunias orientalis).
Flat Leaved Parsley
Dill, Lovage and Parsley was sown yesterday - the rest will be sown and dotted around the plot over the next fortnight.
Both varieties will be sown after half term.
Pommee Brune d’Hiver
Pink is already sown, and the others are being sown a pinch at a time and will be grown at the plot.
Sown yesterday in the Gerturde Franck bed
Peas and Mangetout
Golden Sweet mangetout
King Tut/Pran’s Pea
Suttons Purple Podded
Lots of peas! Goldensweet is sown in the GF bed - the others will be sown over the next few weeks at the plot.
Alberto’s Locoto, a Rocoto pepper
Chilli de Cayenne
Small Unnamed Chilli
Napier Pointy Red
All of these were sown at school and the ones that we don't grow will be sold at Ryton Gardens' Chilli day on behalf of the students that have grown them. I am having one of each in my greenhouse though! The small unnamed chilli wasn't happy though and these did not survive. the Cayenne weren't sown this year.
Georgia Candy Rooster Squash
Waltham - butter nut squash
Candy Roaster and Zapalitto I supplied - and I have herds of these growing now in all my schools..the others will be sown over the next fortnight.
Dwarf Mr Snow
Green Bell Pepper
Yellow Out Red In
Tasmanian Chocolate Dwarf
All these were sown and are growing well, at home, at the lottie, at some schools and I am giving the rest away this week as I am running out of space in the greenhouse.
True Potato Seed
Blue Belle TPS
Not sown this year - just didn't get time/space.
Spring Cabbage Durham Early
will be sown in a couple of weeks.
Tzimbalo Solanum Caripense
These were sown and all are growing well - will be growing them at home, at the lottie and at schools.
Sweet Peas [mainly pink]
These 2 haven't been sown yet - will be in the next 2 weeks.
I am away from home for a few days to miss the Jubilee - so all the remaining seeds that I intend to sow will be going in as soon as I am back - the person looking after our house isn't good with watering [will probably drown them] so I am hesitating in sowing too many in the greenhouse with all this stonking hot weather.
Here is a photo of the netting that I have made this year - it's on the Munty frame but needs fixing at the edges and the first batch of beans is ready to go in later this week.
