The first tomato seeds have been sown. I chose these two only because the packets were already opened and there weren’t many seeds left in either, so it doesn’t really matter if they fail to germinate as I will sow more seeds in a couple of weeks.
The free seeds with this month’s Kitchen Garden Magazine include this tomato, a cordon cherry “tasting of raspberries, blackberries and other summer fruits”. Only 10 seeds though. It sounds very exotic.
This aubergine is “as easy to grow as a tomato” – with around 90 seeds, there will be some for the Community Garden seed swap.
And the ever-popular Mixed Oriental salad leaves – for all year round – though not doing particularly well in either the Tiny Greenhouse, or the mini-greenhouse inside the Potting Shed.
