Note to self.

I'm also using this a a bit of a diary, so you'll have to bear with me if there's an odd note or two.

Sowed geraniums yesterday (one packet had 9 seeds - av contents 18!), feel an email to T & M coming on.

Now 19/20 tomatoes!

Time For A Quickie!

Very briefly - another tomato has popped through, so that's 9/10 for each variety. The Shirley seed I sowed were bought and opened a year ago, so they've not suffered too much under my hands. (Or in the biscuit tin!).

Tomatoes Progress

13 days since sowing & here's how they're looking. Sowed one seed to a cell & 17 out of 20 have germinated. Quite happy with this as the aim is to get 12 plants for the heated greenhouse.

Note the sturdiness aided by the aluminium foil!

Let It Snow!

You may remember earlier in the blog, a photo of my greenhouses. Here it is repeated, but how they looked this morning! More white stuff forecast.

Typical, today's the day my tomatoes decided to poke their heads out of the compost. Wouldn't be surprised if they go back in!

Snow, carrots & a fork

Had to dash to the plot as we'd run out of veg at home. Blowed if I was going to the nearest shop to buy some, despite the weather, as the nearest shop is Tesc*!

Was snowing quite well up there, but was rewarded with these beauties. The fork - well it's just for scale, but at least it's not in the carrots!
