Today I'm planting out about 60 brassicas which are now at the 5 leaf stage (2 types of calabrese, brussels and Primo cabbage.) Also have to find a way to fix my wheelbarrow which broke on Saturday, while I was moving a tonne of topsoil. One of the handles broke off at the base. Will probably have to fork out for a new one and turn the old one into a herb planter.
I reckon I'm also going to have to plant the toms into the greenhouse, regardless that it's still getting pretty cold at night. They're in the conservatory at the moment and most of them have open flowers. I've already had to pot them on into 5" pots as it is, even though I didn't sow them until Good Friday (Mar 29), a month later than usual. It's been a very challenging year for cold glasshouse growing (well, gardening in general!)
