Sowing our early Midnight courgettes

For the last couple of years, we've done an extra early sowing of courgettes that we've grown under cover until it's warm enough to place them outside. This year is no exception, so our Midnight courgettes were sown on 6 March. As usual with cucurbits like courgettes, we sowed the seeds on their edge to... Continue Reading →

Pricking out some of our tomatoes, and sowing a few more varieties!

Unfortunately these had got slightly leggy waiting for us to get to Mum and Dad's to prick them out at the weekend, but fear not, we... Continue Reading →

That being said, on a first sweep of... Continue Reading →

More success with the Little Gem lettuces the second time round!

We're going to assume that we were right about the first packet of Little Gem seeds no longer being viable, as we sowed these ones in exactly the same way and the germination rate (as you can see!) is much, much better! Therefore last weekend, we pricked the seedlings out into the below cell tray... Continue Reading →

An update on 2022 progress so far

Over the past couple of weeks, we've been sowing a number of different seeds. Therefore, we thought we'd provide an update on where they're all at now. First up, we have the Tasty King cucumbers. They're growing on quite well in their 3" pots and are starting to form their first true leaves. As we... Continue Reading →
