As the wind was atrocious again yesterday - I spent a couple of happy hours in my greenhouse, doing what I love best - having a bit of a potter.
Although it is earlier than I would normally do it - I planted up these Banana Shallots to give them a chance to develop good roots before planting them out in the garden. This years Shallots all went to seed, probably because of the dry weather, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for this lot.
I also planted my Garlic in pots
On the way home from holiday we stopped in at Norfolk Lavender and they were selling these huge garlic bulbs (nearly the size of a tennis ball) for only 30p ea. so I am hoping for an equally large crop.
In the bags that I planted Potatoes previously I sowed some Meteor Peas at the weekend - I couldn't believe it when I checked yesterday - they are already through, so I brought the bag in to the greenhouse, as I knew the weather was going to get colder (which it is today) together with the carrots sown in the other bag
So the greenhouse is gradually filling up with crops for the winter where I can nurture and protect to my hearts content.
I also sowed three troughs of salad leaves so I can still have my daily lettuce fix through the winter.
All in all, a good afternoons' work. Now - what's next on the list?
