I'm very cross as I watered from below but it's still washed off,how on a plastic label I don't know. I'm tempted to resow but some were the last in the packet or some from the pas the parcel on here. I've no idea what the pen was doing in the seed tub either.

Off out to pot on peppers and chillis.  Some of the flower seeds I sowed last week are also through so will be potting them on in a few days.

I too will be playing the "does the wood marker mean cweet peppers or chilli peppers" game later in the season  :nowink:

Not a lot to do this morning - moved the herbs and the salads off the heated bed as they're getting leggy, the La diva cukes have germinated  :D and the strawbs are definitely about to flower  :ohmy:

Alea Jacta Est!

1 seed of each, Cuke Passandra, Cuke Femspot, Butternut Squash, Courgette, Melon Charantais sowed into 9cm pots and into the propagator.

I'll do another batch in a weeks time and then the main sowing in mid April.

Lovely and warm in the PT today!!!  Harvested radishes and lettuce.

Potted on the legend and ferline toms and the paris island cos. Sowed another 12 cells of spring onions from 3 different seed suppliers  ::)

Emptied out the compost I sowed the valamaine lettuce into as none have germinated, I think the seeds gone over now - bought it in 2005 so I can't really complain.

Repotted toms, rearranged plants to squeeze yet more in, vented psb seedlings as they've popped up, removed a couple of snails that were having a chomp, moved some brassicas to the cold frame.  If it's going to go colder next week will have to reorganise again  :wacko: ...or get another plastic tom house & fleece as a 2nd extension :nowink:
