Remind Me

The seedlings all survived their first night outside and even the beetroot had perked up a bit. The brassicas in the greenhouse have germinated. And look at the leeks unbending themselves, with their little spent-seed hats on!
We spent a blustery few hours on the plot this afternoon. Rain threatened but we still only had a few drops and the ground is very dry. Still all we have to eat from the plots is rhubarb, but not long now...
We mixed up some compost for the potato bags - a mix of multi-purpose, coconut coir and John Innes No.2: Orla, Chopin, Kestrel and Bergundy Red. One seed potato per bag, apart from two Chopin.
This post is mostly as a reminder for us and the title song is one I'd not heard before but I like it, it's by High Contrast.

  1. You have been brave, I have not put out any plants to harden off and maybe to my detriment as many are suffocating in the greenhouse. I have rhubarb in the garden too, done much better this year than last, so maybe I will brave the rain and pick some sticks. Not heard of this song either, going to play it now.

    1. Yes! Make something lovely with your rhubarb to give me inspiration please :-)

  2. We planted the last lot of potatoes last week so they are all either in pots, bags or in the ground. Kestrel and Orla are two of our varieties.

    1. You have a huge amount compared to ours! A couple of hour ground planted ones have just appeared through the soil.
