Plottin on.

Well after all that snow we had some nice weather so I got down the plot to do some more digging. 

I picked up 40 pavers & have just laid them down on the ground so I can see where I'm going & to help with planning. They are bumpy but I will smooth that out before I finish.

I have dug 25ft by 14ft so far. The lump of concrete goes all the way across the plot, I'm wondering if it's some type of pipe line for the houses nearby.


At least I will have space for the potatoes & sweetcorn. Now to dig somewhere for all the rest to go.

At home I have some plants already growing. Some of the peppers haven't yet germinated, hopefully they will soon. I did sow some more.


Locsei and Pimento have all germinated, Bukaten is 2nd with 80%, Cayenne has only 60% whilst the Tomato Pepper & Kalocsai haven't germinated yet. 

The Indigo on the far right is for my home garden, it produces a blue dye. None of them have germinated yet either.


My tomatoes are doing brilliantly. The Roma is the only one which has 2 that haven't germinated but that's not a problem as there is plenty of time to sow some more.

I have plenty of potatoes chitting. Rooster, Desiree & Maris Piper.



Mum's peas have started, there are lots of gaps where some haven't yet germinated, not sure if I need to wait or re-sow.




I decided to use some fence paint I found in my shed to treat the wooden parts of the shelving for the greenhouse, they look really nice now.

Then it decided to snow again so I've not been able to go plotting all weekend.

  1. We haven’t done much at all as everywhere is so wet - that is when it isn’t covered in snow.
