The Beginning of Another Growing Year
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.
