A bit of progress on the growing front.
Other than the parsnips, all of the other seeds I had planted a fortnight ago are up facing the sunlight. Some I admit are a little leggy which are concerning me a little, that they may be too weak to continue and may keel over. I will have to keep an eye on them.
I planted some more seeds today including blauhilde, neckar gold, blue lake all a variety of climbing beans, Igloo cauliflower and greyhound cabbage (see side-bar for full list). Sowing the seeds today felt a bit peculiar. Let me tell you why? In the past, I took for granted the space I had and would sow trays full of seeds of a particular variety. This time knowing that I had limited space to grow, I sowed what was realistic for the space I had, so thats about five seeds of each of the climbing beans and 6 cabbages for example.
Although the sun shined and enticed us to put out our laundry out on the washing line, it didn't last before it made us rush back out and pull them all off. But before that, I was able to have a look at some progress in the garden. For a start the garlic I planted a fortnight ago is up - this one looks particularly luminescent. The herbs especially the chives are starting to thicken. I'll have to tidy it up before it becomes too unruly. I also planted out directly some Ideal baby carrots in a pot; and Bright lights radishes in the 3 foot by 3 foot plot.
