Sunday 15th February 2015 – And so it begins again!!

What do you do on such a lovely sunny Sunday? Well that’s quite easy, you go and play in the greenhouse. Today I spent the afternoon in my greenhouse starting off my Garlic and Onion sets in half toilet rolls. I’ve been saving up our toilet roll tubes since this time last year and still I’ve not got enough for all my garlic and onions. I even had my sister saving them for me as well. It’s not something that you can ask your neighbours for. They know I’m a bit odd and this would just make them realise that I’m completely dotty!! We all get on really well, but there are somethings you just don’t discuss. This year I’ve got the following Onions sets all from Mr Fothergill’s Seeds: “Sturon” which I do grow every year and they tend to grow really well, “Centurion” which I’ve also had great success with and “Hercules”. How do they get their names? I imagine my Hercules Onions running around with a beard and a nappy on like in Jason and the Argonauts, and my Centurion Onions with red helmets, being “Stwiked and thwon to the floor very roughly!” Like in Monty Python – Life of Brian. Now briskly on to the Garlic. This year I got mine from Homebase and the only variety they had was “Casablanca” I’ve never tried these before so it’ll be interesting to see how they grow. Every time I go in the greenhouse I’ll have to say to them “Here’s looking and you Garlic!” Enough of the terrible cliches, I think I’d better go now.

Garlic and Onions starting to grow. There are more don't worry.
