The early planted spuds from the greenhouse are now outside but some are still looking a bit leggy.
For those who are growing several varieties of spuds in containers be sure to put the name on otherwise you'll never know what you are eating. Sounds obvious but it's very easy to forget what you've planted.
This afternoon I sowed 20 Alderman peas in cells under glass. These will be planted out to climb up the wigwam I’ve constructed and are in addition to the Early Onward and Lincoln peas which I’m sowing successionally to ensure continuity of cropping.
I try different seed composts every year and of the three I’ve used this year only one, Westland John Innes, would I ever use again. It has just the right feel for sowing fine seeds like lettuce and carrot whereas some of the others have lumps or wood or loads of gravel in them which need to be sieved out. If you're selling something as seed compost it should be perfectly usable straight from the bag. This is not an advert, just an observation!!
