I'm looking forward to -

a return of this. It is an old photo from a couple of years ago & I am now pretty fed up of viewing a bare, cold veg patch. 
However, I am not being too hasty this year, I am not setting up the propagator until the end of Feb at the earliest. I will be warming the soil up first & then I will sow a couple of chillies, milder ones mind, not the super duper heat ones which Mike wants to grow. I shall order a couple of plants for him.

I shall be doing my main sowing of the season towards the end of Feb beginning of March which will hopefully give me some nice strong plants to grow.

However this weekend will see me in the greenhouse sowing some broad beans, I meant to do them in the autumn but time slipped away.

  1. It must be lovely to be able to potter in the greenhouse and plant things earlier than everyone else :-) I can't wait to get my greenhouse, I'm hoping to have it installed by the end of march. I'm so excited. I also absolutely love the way you have edged your veg bed, it looks very pretty.

    1. It is wonderful, I'm glad you are getting your greenhouse., I'm hoping to have my chickens at a similar time.

  2. Enjoy sowing the broad beans and think of me while you do it. I will be sat on my hands itching to join in but with no sight yet of permission to erect the polytunnel I'm hoping things all happen at once in the very near future.

    I have the company (First Tunnels) on stand by with my order already prepared, all they have to do is ship it to me on my go ahead.

    1. Oh Sue, is it planning permission? That's awful I hope it comes through for you soon. I shall keep my fingers crossed.

  3. It's always a good idea to hold fire with seed sowing. Sometimes you get away with early sowings but at other times young seedlings suffer a setback which takes time for them to recover from.

    1. I sowed quite early last year & was fed up with trying to cram baby plants in the greenhouse & keeping them safe from slugs. I don;t think I gained anything from an early sowing either.

  4. Beautiful garden. I guess this spring-summer you will have more beautiful and colorful garden. I can wait to see your garden this year

  6. Won't be long now, it's time to plan what's to be grown. I do envy you your greenhouse. I haven't sown any broad beans yet either. Soon!

  7. That's a lovely photo you've shown. I'll be putting off sowing seed until about March and once the seed get going it will be all go from then on out!

  8. I didn't get either my broad beans or garlic in at the end of last year...I really need to be thinking about them now but the weather just isn't very welcoming. Maybe next weekend....the good thing is I will be in the greenhouse so in relative comfort!!
