Planting out your Courgettes

Courgette fruits come in all shapes and several colours. They are wonderful to cook with and in my opinion are best when they’re lightly sautéed.

Now all frost has gone in my area I can plant them outside. Here’s how I plant out mine.

Planting out the rest of the brassicas

I now have an entire bed full of brassicas, and they’re all growing really well. Plant out all your brassicas in exactly the same way, and make sure you protect them from slugs and snails, as well as from the birds.

Here’s how I plant out mine…

Planting out Brukale

More planting out to do which is great. My raised beds are getting fuller and fuller. Today is the turn of the Brukale which are a cross between Brussels Sprouts and Kale. Here’s how I plant out mine…

Sorry about the knobbly knees in the picture, it was hot and I was wearing shorts.

Planting out peas

All forms of peas are best sown in succession (some each month), that way you’ll have a good supply throughout the summer. Peas can be sown from March through to September (if the weather is still good). They can be sown directly in the soil, or in seed trays.

They will need a structure to climb up, so make sure it’s a sturdy one.

Here’s how I’m planting mine out in the soil.

Planting out spinach

Yes it’s that time now when all those plants can be planted outside. Lots to do, but firstly the spinach. I like spinach, and so do the chickens, so hopefully we won’t be fighting over it….

It’s getting hot and sweet in the greenhouse…

Time to prick out my hot chillies and sweet pepper chillies into individual 3 inch pots. They’ve been growing very well so far. When you prick them out, make sure you label them correctly as you don’t want any surprises…
