between wet, windy days and sunny, warmer ones. This morning saw a slight frost but thankfully the grapevine, hydrangea and potato foliage are all okay.
At home I’m down to these last two stored onions, and will now have to buy them for the next four months or so. The various tomato seedlings on the windowsill are growing well.
The sweetcorn Lark seeds that I sowed in pots during last week have started to appear, but there’s no sign yet of the cucumber Marketmore.
With sunny and warm weather forecast through the weekend into next week I’ll be direct sowing the rest of the annual flower seeds, including California poppies (eschscholzia californica). I’ll also be planting the various gladioli corms which are mostly white and/or yellow. I was given a handful which are a much more dramatic colour which I’ll probably put in a container.
Have a good weekend!
