Slow progress over the winter due to my mother's death and the weather. I've done two new raised beds, moved the rhubarb and most of the raspberries, and I need to get two more beds done this month for my potatoes. So far I've got Allium christophii and Fritillaria meleagris - planted last autumn - coming up, and various alliums planted. I've been quite pleased by the way potatoes and other tender things have come through in pots under a couple of layers of black plastic. A couple of pots of ulluco I forgot and left outside have come through with tubers mostly intact. This year I won't be growing so many TPS lines so I'll have more big post available for other things.
Spent last weekend tidying out Greenhouse (8x4 meters) as left last season due to illness in family. Weeds had got in.Therapuetic digging out/washing pots and equipment. Put down weed membrane and path. Put together big old Humex propagator and linked up in greenhouse. Planted six varieties of chilli and five tomatoes.Chillies: Red Demon/Apache/Caribbean Antillais/Prairie Fire/Pasilla Super Chilli.Tomato: Yellow Pear/Garden Gem/Garden Treasure/ Irish Gardeners Delight/ Tiny Tim....(a bit of fun :)Also planted some older Chilli seed I'm hoping is still ok. Chilli Monkeyface/Padron/Alberto's Locoto Hope they will be ok at Max temp had been 20 and min 8 in cold Wales. Put in a heat mat to help and spiked to max 36 and low 6. Eek!! Also planted some lettuce (Drunken Woman) and coriander leaf.Sunloving...the irony of manure on election boards gave me a real giggleEdit to add: Also planted Harrier Butternut Squash
I haven't done very much yet as we're in the middle of replacing the old raised beds and making some new ones.Moved my perennial onions into the new perennial bed and planted shallots and garlic the other day, finished off the legume bed and built a cane structure for the peas/climbing beans.Tomorrow I plan to sow peas, chickpeas and broad beans outside, and tomatoes and chillies in the propagator inside.
