After the planning, now comes the sowing. Tomatoes are making progress in the greenhouse. Parsnips, beetroot, carrots and chard seeds are in the ground. It's a start. I'm going to grow as much as I can in the raised beds and less in containers this year. A decision that I have made due to the poor quality of potting composts and the cost of lots of containers needing to be filled. With careful planning and successional sowing I should be able to grow the food we enjoy and have a plentiful supply. There won't be room for brassicas, unfortunately, because of the limited space - but I will just have to live with that and because you need a lot of pea plants for a decent harvest I won't be growing them either - maybe just a few for pea shoots. The blog is now just a record for me and because of time restraints I will be closing the comments. Sorry about that but needs must - I have a lot of other things to cope with right now, if you read my other blog you will know what I am talking about. Let's hope this is a productive growing year for us all.
