Nooooo already?  I was thinking next week, but I did get the packets out today..... hmm maybe tomorrow then!

Potted up toms, sowed a few more cues (no.. I'm sure 6 will be plenty  :wacko:) played the greenhouse shuffle.

I have a new toy! It does have a door, but it was nearly dark by the time I finished. Yaaaaaay! I had help for the beginning bit, otherwise I think I'd still be there!

More seeds sewn today, flowers and lettuce. Allotment tomorrow to plant earlies and broadbeans.

Potted on the toms- honestly don't know how I ended up with that many!  Oh yes now i remember- seed circle  ::)
My La divas cues looking nice but did I really need all 4 to germinate on top of the other 3 varieties?
Pumpkins seeds sown (12 really, really?) all snug inside in the spare room....Can't be bothered with loads of brassicas (I've done some red sprouts and PSB)- but I'm the only one cutting sprouts, chard, kale and PSB currently and I'll regret it next year I know... :(  How long have I got and will they catch up if I wait until after the rush has calmed down?

Potted on shishigatani squash, courgettes and tomatilloes & gave everything else a good water.

Rescued the greenhouse window from the next plot and put it back on the greenhouse... :blush:

Ah- hmm but if I left em outside the slugs would be there pronto and I do like to get them in a state whereby they could survive a chomping.... also 2 cabbage whites on the plot today!  Will have a think about a slug proof brassica seedbed

In a renewed attempt to replace all my dead herbs:
Potted on basil
Sowed Rosemary
Sowed Parsley
Sowed Chives
Potted on the chilli peppers and pinched out the tips on 2 of the jals, not something id normally but thought Id try it this year.
Sowed a cell tray of purple climbing French beans
All the cukes are up, I'll sow some more next week in anticipation of killing this lot  :lol:

Fetched some compost yesterday ready for the tomatoes to go out.
