The big seed sowing day…

Posted on Updated on

It was a cold Sunday morning! Not the best allotment weather. I only had an hour or so… Bit manic with it being mother’s day!

So I got my seed hit list selected. Flossie helped!


And then i legged it to sow in the greenhouse:
Broadbeans…as I might have dug some of mine up in my impatience for them to grow outside. Probably need a much bigger pot to….! Let’s call it an experiment!

Seeds in modules

The cucumber and courgette seeds went in, and taken back to the safety of the mini greenhouse in my kitchen.

And I covered my rhubarb… Monty said so!! As did a magazing cutting from a friend at work πŸ™‚ so I thought I better do it! I recycled the half water butt left on our plot.

Now you see it.... Rhubarb
Now you don't!

I got some proper photos of my onions and garlic…


And the beloved sweet peas!!

I ran out of seed compost… So that was my lot. I’m going to hang back with my outdoor seeds as the weather is really turning at the moment. Brrr!

    Wow, very inspiring! All my good intentions for early seed sowing were knocked off track by life this year (again!). But you’ve inspired me to get on and do it by the end of this week.
    Love your recycled water butt!

      Thanks, I’m not sure if it’s good recycling… But I don’t have a lid for it… πŸ™‚ it’s lovely to be getting busy!

      Yes I was a little manic, but glad to be set. Somehow everything takes a little longer than you think at the plot. Perhaps enjoying it too much! I’m impatiently looking at my seedling in my kitchen now….
