Baza has worked really hard on his plot, has his own thread a bit like a blog.
Lovely dog, Baza. What a lot of seed trays! Hels has been busy.
Is that you in your avatar picture? Where is it? Looks gorgeous, like the Mediterranean.
Mrs. Garden, Hazel and Flumpy - Shadow was caught by next door farmer chasing sheep so DD had to re-home him. He didn't die.
Cold and grey near Poitiers.
No big rush though, if March is cold I often don't start sowing beetroot etc. until April.
Morning all. Grey day. Have given daughter her birthday presents. Going to a restaurant in Poitiers for lunch but smallest grandson (5) doesn't feel very well. Daughter says he'll be OK when he's had some paracetamol. I hope so.
The manure does need to be well rotted, not smelly, black and crumbly. Don't use it for carrots and parsnips. Best to have 2 or 3 beds and rotate the crops. This is a guide from the RHS. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=124
Hosta is in Devon, Peanuts is in Camberley, Surrey I think, so cutting should be OK then.
That should do it, perhaps the seeds are duff.
Just a coincidence that these turned out the same colour.
