I always have to remind myself not to panic when I see others have sown their vegetable seeds and are even potting them on into larger pots or planning to plant them outside. This post is to remind myself to do things in my own time, based on previous years, as it will all work out in the end. Better late than never, and if something fails, just try again.
Leeks: Lyon (12 cells), Musselburgh (4 cells)
18 February 2021
And after three weeks – LEEKS! Yes, they’re tiny, but they’ve germinated and are growing.
It’s a lovely morning, but after two nights of freezing temperatures and snow yesterday, it’s not safe to set foot outside the door until the ice has thawed. There’s no need risk a broken limb because I took my photographs in advance (on Thursday), though I only went out to fill the bird feeders!
In the Potting Shed, the sweet peas have survived the below zero temperatures. I didn’t want to remove their ‘tent’ so I don’t know if they’ve started to bush out after pinching them out a few weeks ago.
This is the first proper seed catalogue I have ever received. I was just about to flick through it and place an order, when Padraig over at Grow Write Repeat shared his January Inspiration post and foolishly mentioned he’d been cataloguing seeds. And I suddenly thought – I can’t believe I haven’t bored everyone stupid shared my seed spreadsheet.
