You must be joking!
Just restarting the thread for 2021.

Happy growing everyone.  ;)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Another day spent in the lovely cold fresh air clearing the hangover.

Construction... The Bug Hotel is nearly complete, one small section to do and its ready for the tourists come spring.
Seeds should be here next week so weather permitting will be on again.

As we have not had notification of Building, I decided to throw myself at it. Got he Fork out and turned 4 plots over as Snow and Frost are forecast again. Broad Beans would I be better off sowing in the Cold Greenhouse, or straight into the soil, would it be possible to get 2 sowings in. Thank You.

On our little patch of dirt here in Kent, the rain has not stopped for what seems like an eternity. The ground is absolutely sodden. So today, like the past couple of weeks, we have done nothing on the plot. However, we have a couple of greenhouses at home, and we have been sowing stuff in those. We have also been sowing chillies, peppers and aubergines in heated propagators indoors. Hopefully we are in for a couple of days of dry weather and our plots are on the higher ground of our site, so they should drain fairly quickly allowing us to get something done over the next few days - Fingers crossed. 

Ralph.
I need more space...

Didnít brave the plot, but did have a shunt round in the greenhouse.  Emptied out pots of salads which we have eaten, revitalised compost with some fresh stuff and some fertiliser and replanted with winter salad mix.

Potted on violas grown from seed and sowed broad beans.  Bright sun but chilly, so that was enough for today  :)

Even I ventured out into the greenhouse, breeze quite strong from the North makes the garden quite chilly, but the big greenhouse is in the lee of the hedge, 15C in there  8)
I pruned the grape vine, just in time as the buds are beginning to open, and tidied up anything else with grotty leaves. Stacked the new delivery of seed compost inside in the dry.
I tidied up the seed trays and modules and brought more pots indoors to wash - ready for the off.

Down at the plot I hoed bed 3, then emptied 20 bags of well rotted manure over most of it (bags of varied sizes) then started to empty the finished compost bin on to the bed as the top layer, but only managed 2 barrow loads before it started to get cold & the chickens decided it was time for supper. A lovely first start to the year.

Tide was half way out today so ditched the chest waders and put me wellies on.
Raspberry canes cut, and the bug hotel was fixed in its new home ready for the residents.
Sown Broad Beans.

I took stock of what is growing well, and what may need a little help.

The snow peas are up, growing, forming tendrils and starting to climb.  Looking good for January. I may have peas in early March if the weather is good.

Sugar snap peas are not doing quite as well,  A few are up, but others are not, despite chitting the seed before I planted them.  I'm chitting some more seeds to fill in the bare spots, they are already sprouting, I will put in pots and set out when they have a few leaves.

Brussels sprouts I planted from seed last fall are in the ground but still quite small.  Next warm spell, I may give a little fertilizer, including some calcium nitrate.

Radishes and turnips are growing well, but small. 

Spinach doing great, I should be picking some in late February.

Lettuce transplants are 10 cm tall or so; the second batch that I planted directly in the ground are up but still tiny.
Please stay safe!  Wear a mask, and observe social distancing!
