Quick progress update now we’re in to March

After our initial bumpy ride with the Little Gem lettuce, they're now romping away in their cell tray. As lettuces are relatively hardy, these have now been moved into our greenhouse which is unheated, and they're growing away nicely. Fingers crossed that in a couple of weeks they will be ready to plant out into... 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 →

Other early seed sowings

Last weekend, we also did some other sowings. These were mainly for trial purposes to see whether the seeds we'd been sowing last year were still viable. Although we're hoping that they're still germinating because it means we can use the seed for another year, we're also secretly hoping that the trial seeds germinate so... Continue Reading →

The courgettes we're growing in containers were placed outside during the day for the past couple... Continue Reading →

Sowing some more container crops

This weekend, we sowed some more seeds in containers. This time, it was Solo and Golden Eye beetroot, the first being regular red beetroot, and the other a yellow coloured beetroot - a new variety for us this year. We also sowed some Mixed Leaf lettuce, Bulls Blood beet leaves, Flyaway carrots and Rougette radishes.... Continue Reading →

A further update on our outdoor container crops

It's still a bit cold for lots of vegetables outside at the moment, especially because of the frosts we seem to keep having overnight! However, we've got some relatively hardy crops that we started off a month or so ago. The Little Gem lettuces are not quite as far along as perhaps they would've been... Continue Reading →
