the past few nights, and some showers during the days, which was good to see and it looks like there’ll be more during the coming week.
I put the climbing bean canes up during the week, a double row of nine, and I’ll probably be sowing the first seeds next week.
All the seed potatoes that I planted are now showing foliage, including the ones that got frosted a couple of weeks ago. The onions, both the sets and seedlings, are doing well and the broad bean plants are slowly getting taller. This morning I noticed that the first beetroot Baby Beat seedlings are just showing.
This is one of three sunflower Holiday seedlings that I’m hoping to grow around the plot. This variety only grows around four feet tall but forms a spherical bush four feet across so needs plenty of room.
Nasturtium seedlings, a mixure of Tom Thumb and Tip Top Mahogany, are starting to appear.
Lots of the cornflower Polka Dot seedlings have appeared. This is dwarf variety, which grows to about a foot, in various colours including blue, lavender, maroon, pink, red, rose and white.
Have a good week!
