Now the weather is getting better and the seed packets are arriving, temptation is to start growing things you really don’t need or indeed eat!
Chillies is something I am going to try – I am sowing indoors 1/2 inch deep in plastic cups and in a propagator on the window sill to harvest in July-August.
Potatoes are in the egg box on the windowsill waiting for the chits to arrive and then into potato bags. A single OCA sneaked in there… They are going in flower pots under my glasshouse. Looking forward to growing them this year. Last session I bought a plant and ate one raw in salad, shared them with others and saved some for planting on this session.
Jerusalem Artichokes been given a few but might find a big pot to put them in and not in the soil, although tempted to use them as a windbreak. Not sure I want to eat them but should give it a go….just nervous of the wind!
Rhubarb buried and wood chip surrounding – needs some compost and some TLC to ensure a good crop. Love rhubarb.
Late garlic – might pop some garlic in like white Solent a spring variety.
Roll on weather – growing here we come. Think I might do a chilli night up at the lottie with my Chillies and Dutch oven.
