I’m quite excited.
All winter, I have been tending some seeds.
OK, so let’s be honest, that gives a rather broad impression. I planted some seeds in the autumn:
- Some had to go in situ. Nothing seems to have happen there.
- The rest had to go in seed trays, in a frost free environment. Some did nothing at all. One packet produced one plant.
Now the rest are ready to be re-potted or planted out. And because I don’t have enough flower pots of a suitable size, out they are going.
Fortunately, I now have a cold frame to harden them off. So they have not been the victim of the wind. Keep your fingers crossed that they survive the peasants, deer, and rabbits whom I suspect of eating the vegetable plants!
The one I’m most excited about is the single survivor with big leaves. He is comfrey. Apparently, William Morris said that comfrey gives the best natural greens. So I can’t wait to try it. After all, anyone who can come up with “Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be beautiful or believe to be useful” must know a thing or two.
The more delicate looking plants are Dyers’ Broom.
I’ve stocked up on slug pellets, and I have my fingers crossed!!
