Sowing some seeds…

Today I managed to sow some more tomatoes (Heinz seeds gifted to me by my daughter for Mother’s Day), some spinach, sweetcorn, courgettes and radish.

I noticed that the tomatoes and cucumbers I sowed a week or so ago have started to come up already…

Tomatoes sprouting!

I have updated my planting record here, with these new seeds.  Hope to see them sprouting soon.  Next I will be planting my beans I think, and some lettuce.

An update on how the seedlings all look in April!

So here are some pictures of how my seedlings are looking now on 7th April.

First some tomatoes which I have now moved to the greenhouse and potted onto bigger pots. They went a little bit limp when I moved them out, but seem to be perking up a little now:

 

Next is my cucumbers, which were getting too big for their pots, or seemed to be anyway, so I have moved them to the greenhouse and potted them onto bigger pots. I hope they survive!DSCF8406

 

Next is two trays of seeds that I thought were not going to germinate. I was just about to empty them into the compost when I noticed that they were actually starting to sprout above the surface; now a few days later they are getting a little bigger and more of them are appearing! On the left is coriander and on the right is leeks:

 

Next is garlic and lettuce. Garlic is ready to be planted out and the lettuce is doing nice! Might need to pot this on, or maybe just eat it once it gets a bit bigger!

 

Next from right to left is: cabbage, brocolli, broad beans and then my lovely courgettes (which are only a few days old!). So pleased with my courgettes!

 

So that’s it for now. I will update with news of the strawberry plants which are doing ever so well and also my spinach which has come up too. Also my peppers are ready to be potted on… better get on with it very soon!

Bye for now 🙂

 

 

 

Cucumbers, Tomatoes and Peppers!

A quick update on how my cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers are all doing!

I am very pleased.  I have about 16 tomato plants!!  5 cucumber plants.  Lots and lots of peppers, which need to be potted on.  They are still indoors too, and I need to think about getting them into the greenhouse, as they are getting bigger now.

Bye for now!

Cucumber progress and Hot Peppers!

My cucumbers are all doing great, can’t believe how nicely they are coming on now.  After a shaky start, when nothing seemed to be happening, they are now looking more promising.  Must of been the spell in the airing cupboard that got them going?!  Well whatever it is, I’m pleased.

Also my tomato seedlings seem to be enjoying their new bigger pots!  They are looking nice and perky.

And my hot peppers have started coming up too – very happy about this as planted them weeks ago and thought the seeds had rotted.  Seems as though I put a few too many in one of the modules, but I can thin this out.  Just glad there is some activity here at last!
