Kathy at her Allotment Heaven blog has shown me the way to grow peas ahead of the season and in a way that avoids rodents digging them up as so often happens at the plot. The cardboard rolls are toilet rolls or kitchen towel rolls cut in two. They need to be placed in seed tray modules because this allows the air to circulate and so avoids the problem of mould developing. The ones on the left need to be planted out now. The other two were sown later but have already developed wonderful root systems.
Tomato seedings are about ready to pot on. The second generation of Sungold (top) look very weedy compared the the F1 Sungold at the bottom. In between the "Harbinger" are doing very nicely.
Last year I experimente with cucumber and was encouraged enough to try mini cucumber this year:
The courgettes are already up and looking very happy in their peat pots:
Weather permitting, there could be a legume/curcubit bonanza this year!
