This morning is my day off so I decided, seeing as it’s a nice day too, that I would get out in the garden and get my veg plot going.
I started with 3 drills. carrots on the outside and parsnips in the middle. 15cm between the drills and (roughly) 11mm deep. My reasoning for this is that both garlic (You can see it to the right) and onions (That I will sow to the left when I buy sets) will both help deter carrot fly. Parsnips don’t suffer those so they can sit in the middle.
I then scattered seed in the drills and covered them thinly.
I’m going to have to point out that I should NEVER, EVER say that I have gotten out all the bulbs… from an area. *sigh* Those were bulbs that got taken out of the plot this morning.
Once the veg seeds were sown outside I went into the greenhouse to do some more seed sowing in there.
I made up 2 trays and in one went the Livingstone daisies (Mesembryanthemum) and in another went a mix of the Ciliegia Piccante seen here (8 seeds) and the last of the sweet chillies I had over from last year.
With that done I went inside and made a cup of tea. The fix I made on my greenhouse REALLY worked because it was like a sauna in there! O.O
