During last week I planted out all the onion sets Sturon, along with twelve of the red variety Rosanna which I was given to try. Since then I’ve checked the rows each day to make sure that none have been pulled out of the ground by birds, and so far I’ve only had to replant two.
Next week I’ll be planting out the two rows of first early potatoes Pentland Javelin, a variety I’ve not grown before.
At home I’ve sown three of each tomatoes Gardener’s Delight, Golden Sunrise and Outdoor Girl, and one Red Robin. I also sowed various flower seeds, mostly cosmos and sunflowers. Yesterday afternoon I noticed that the first seedling, a pot marigold Oopsy Daisy, was just starting to show and this morning there were a couple of others.
On the flower patch lots of self-seeded seedlings are now appearing, mostly pot marigolds as shown in the left-hand picture. There are plenty of others showing elsewhere, including this nasturtium.
It’s going to be an up and down week weather-wise reaching 20 C/68 F on Tuesday and then dropping to 11 C/52 C by Saturday but remaining dry, and thankfully less windy.
Take care, and have a good week!
