If its not a nerve agent the east is dumping on us, its bad weather. Here we go again with a mini beast from the east this time, although it has plonked the same amount of snow as its bigger brother , but it doesn’t feel quite as cold methinks.
Had another few hours at the plot the other day, we managed to get salad potatoes potted up, tomatoes, peppers and a few chilli seeds potted. We had bought several different types of flower bulbs from our local garden centre, Dahlia’s, Lillies as annie loves her plants and wants to keep them for the garden at home and the plot, we potted them up to start them off but we will move them to their final position after they have started to sprout .
The red cabbage and kale we planted before christmas purely as an experiment seem to be growing well, i will leave them to continue for now but as they grow quite large i will be pulling them out as soon as we have something to take their place.
I had a few beans left over in their root trainers , i planted them up using the Canna Bio Plus, on opening the trainers the beautiful roots were revealed, looking very healthy and full of growing ability.
To make sure we have enough room to replant all the seeds we have planted we have built another bed, its not filled with compost yet as we dont want it to stand there wasting away , we will fill it up later when we need it. Managed to plant a few rows of seedlings directly into one the beds, hopefully they will be ok as they are now covered in 6inch of snow.
