It’s time to be ‘pricking out’ my Sweet Sultant flowers and the brightly coloured Swiss Chard seedlings, and get them ready for their next stage of growing.
We’ve just had a mild week here in the East of England, and so the garden has woken up to throw lush green leaves skywards. It’s been the perfect time to get out there.
It’s a busy Saturday in the garden as Winter eases off. There’s sowing, pricking out, and shed sorting to do!
Looking back to the 2017 season in my garden, and highlighting my vegetable growing successes.
The propagator is fired up, and the sow-athon begins with Broad Beans, Sweet Peas, and Salvia.
Always acknowledge when it is time to give up. And give up.
Filled with dreams of Spring 2018, I’ve found myself browsing and buying next year’s seed.
My first attempt at growing Squash Spaghetti Stripetti, keeps me in food into 2018.
I’m drowning in Courgettes, and I’m spiralizing them as fast as I can go…. but I fear this is only the start!
The first harvest of 2017, and my new garden, has happened!
