It is Good Friday today, & to coincide with the break, the weather has turned vile again. Cold yesterday with some rain, light rain all day today, & the forecast for tomorrow is not good either.
Consequently, it has not been a day for going to the Hill, but it's a new month & there are seeds to be sown indoors. I've invested in a second frame of rootrainers, & so spend a merry hour playing with compost & sowing the final round of PEAS (ezetha's blawschock, newick, ne plus ultra & 'raisen cap').
This fourth variety somewhat of a mystery. I had them from the seed swap at the potato day at Ryton, scooping a handful of these interesting looking large brown peas from a bowl into an envelope & hastily scribbling the variety on the front, but even by my rather low standards, the handwriting clarity is terrible.
I've tried looking online to find out more about the variety 'Raisen Capucigaers' but the search produced nothing besides an area in India called Raisen where their main arable crop is peas.
I'm rather looking forward to seeing how they turn out.
