Quick pop in, ace new cold frame LOL, is ramshackle last minute pallet staging from GH. Only beans & courgettes & Cosmos getting toughened up. Daren't risk O/S toms "Dave " as we are due a quiet night, or storm, rain & pestilence, deepends on which forecast we look at  

Lily, me up at big ladder   Scared on a pier.

Alan thanks, deffo not Nelly, that's the only one I know

never grown carrots and carrot fly

I grow carrots in buckets, hopefully high enough to prevent carrotfly, but do plant a couple of garlic chives in with them & put some cuttings from curry plant on top.

Liseals, only probs I've had with parsnip is getting them to germinate, don't know if  carrot root fly a prob with them but wouldn't think so based on name.

Have a go, grow what you enjoy eating

Good morning, it's been dry overnight, and wind seems calmer.

Thoughts with all poorlies & exam takers.

I need to get things hardened off as toms now ready to plant in final pots and currently GH very full. Peas to stake as soon as 4' canes arrive. Netting and bobble things arrived so as soon as veg ready to plant out I can protect them.

Cumbers still in conservatory. Finally 2nd lot of runners have germinated  Two varieties of climbing french beans looking good, wigwams to construct. Two daleks to empty. Need to sow some salad leaves & carrots. Think I'll be busy today  

Might not be, weatherman has just said storms

Is there any reason why you shouldn't plant them near to each other?
