Itchy Fingers
« on: January 13, 2019, 09:02 »
Propagator is warming up, with a 20 cell module of seed compost in it....  It wouldn't hurt to try a few chilli peppers and perhaps a bell pepper or two would it  :nowink:

But....but.....but....but I'm just warming the soil up New Shoots.  :lol:  :D Seems a shame to have it sitting there warm without putting the seeds in  :nowink:

Surely it's a bit cold to be sitting on the soil to warm it  :ohmy: :wub: :tongue2:
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Especially if done the tradition way which says that the soil is warm enough for planting if you can sit on it comfortably without clothes upon the nether regions. Ah well that's me in trouble with the moderators then.  ;)

I wonder why that tradition died out?  ;)

My guess would be the nettles  :nowink:

I've still not sown anything yet, mainly because I can't find the pepper seed envelope. To much to hope for that it would be in the seed box  ::)

Prepared 8 24-cell seed trays for our conservatory today. This of course meant clearing all the shelves of my wife's stuff, sneakily, while she was out, and waterproofing the bottom of all the seed trays by taping big council bin bags over them (ie under them), to try to minimise leakage over the next few months, and so hopefully avoid too many tellings-off.
I have sworn a deep oath that, although the compost will have a couple of weeks to warm up, I shall not sow a single seed until well into February -  maybe, say, nearly the end of the first week. Last year, for the first time ever, I managed to get through January without sowing anything. Of course I still had problems with plants being ready to go out before conditions really suited  -  but, with a bit of fiddling around, everything survived. These will all be things destined for the allotment greenhouses, which, with last year's weather produced best ever crops of aubergines, lots of tomatoes and peppers, but, as usual for me, rather pathetic cucumbers

Found the peppers.. sadly lacking in super hots but I've sown what I had. Fingers crossed for better germination than last year.
