Monday 16th April 2018 – Lots more sowing!

A gorgeous sunny day today, and lovely and warm as well. Dear weather, please keep this up I’m very happy. Sorry if it was raining where you live today.

I spent much of the afternoon in the greenhouse sowing more seeds. I seem to be making a massive dent in my box now, which is great news. Soon I’ll have to start pricking out some of my seedlings.

Today I sowed some more flowers and some vegetables, so here goes:

Firstly the flowers: Clarkia “Choice Double”, Linum Grandiflorum “Bright Eyes” (not burning like fire though), Lupin “Avalune Bicolour Mix“, some seeds from my sister which she’s named Big Pink Poppies I think they may be “Queen Alexandra”, and some Sunflower “Teddy Bear”.

Now the veggies: Sugar Snap Peas “Nairobi”, some Pumpkin seeds from a fruit I grew a couple of years ago, I think they’re “Atlantic Giant”, some other Pumpkin seeds called “Wicked”, Courgette “Griller Mix”, and Courgette “Gold Mine”.

When the sun shines on the greenhouses they get very hot, so I must make sure I water my seedlings well. I’m starting to feel like I’m getting somewhere. I’ve also ordered some top soil which is arriving on Wednesday.

I’ll keep you posted.

    Hi Claire,

    I’m a complete novice learning almost exclusively from your videos! I have some sugar snap peas I’d like to have a go at growing. Do I do them the same way as you did your broad beans or can they go straight out?

    Also, any chance of a video on composting?

    Thank you!

    Claire, I just so love this time of the year and everything is being planted and starts growing. I am finally getting to dig in the garden with consistency. The nights are still dipping down to near freezing but the prospect of warmer. weather next week really gets my garden juices flowing. I may even get to plant the much needed potatoes and onions. I have lettuce that’s ready as well but we will see about that.

    Have a great flower seed planting day.

    Nebraska Dave
