I enjoy growing as much as I can from seed plus it’s much cheaper than buying seedlings.
Now that spring is finally here it’s time to plan the veggie patch and figure out where everything is going to fit in. As anyone who has visited this blog before will know I have a mania for growing tomatoes and this year will be no exception. The first tomato seeds are in the mini plastic house and should be popping through within the next few days.
Those small leaves already showing in the photo above belong to cabbages, lettuce, silverbeet and broccoli.
Tomatoes I intend to grow this season are …
I am trying two new varieties this year namely Delicious and Black Tula.
Due to a very wet winter I’ve not been able to spend much time preparing beds so its all looking a little drab out there just now. Having said that the last few days have been more spring like and this has allowed me a little time to turn over some of the ground. The new stainless steel fork I received for fathers day works a treat and makes this job easier however the soil is still rather wet and claggy.
Hopefully the next couple of weeks will bring warmer weather and I can once again begin to load up my patch with a host of wholesome tasty veggies.
It’s been a long winter and I’m keen to get growing again.
