Without liking to sound too much like a stuck record, it has been bloody cold here again all week with clear frosty skies every night BUT at least now there is sunshine - hurrah!
With not much to be done at the Hill - & the off putting thought of the energy needed to cycle there - I turned to seed sowing & transplanting at home instead.
I got out my MARCH seed envelope, potting compost & pots & sowed two seeds each of six varieties of PEPPER (dedo de mocha, yolo wonder, rainbow mix purple, tasty grill yellow, tasty grill red & sweet mini red), then 24 modules of SHALLOT (banana), a small pot of four LETTUCE (hsl stoke) & a small pot of four BRUSSELS SPROUTS (peer gynt), and finished off by potting on last month's lettuce seedlings.
That leaves the peas still to sow (I'll start them off in loo roll inners when I've made my mind up about which varieties) & some seeds to put in directly at the plot, including carrots, beetroot & radish, but there is no rush with outside sowing.
Mind you, I've nearly run out of fresh veg, so if I actually wish to eat this week, I'm going to have to get my lardy bum into the saddle & get peddling!
