Exciting

A few days ago I sowed some “just within the sow-by date but I wasn’t going to pay you any heed anyway” veggies. Some french beans, some broad beans and some cucumbers. “Do you mind if I put a few pots on the kitchen window cill?” I shouted through to Peggy, although in truth the deed was already done. I’m also planning some cut-and-come-again leaves and various oriental salad whose names escape me. I ran out of compost so they will have to be patient. I will grow them on in large pots and give them my undying love and affection. One cucumber seedling was eager to get going, having foolishly believed my intentions and declarations, greeting me this morning when I staggered into the kitchen. The sight of a germinating seed never gets any less exciting. And I like it that way.

  1. Well I “remembered” today, when I discovered the forgotten envelope, that I haven’t sown my summer annual seeds! D’ya think I should keep them for next year? (I have compost)

  2. I grew some seeds for the first time in years, this year. Quite a few germinated, now to find some pots for them all! I did attempt to plant some outside, but I think the S&S have found them!
