|This is a dog violet (Viola riviniana)|
|Hairy bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta)|
Everything is beginning to grow now and this means that I am going to put out a lot of vegetables grown in the greenhouse. First I will put out all the sweet peas and the potatoes. I will make sure that the soil is warm by taking the temperature with the soil thermometer.
After these go out I will plant some carrots and cover them with enviromesh netting to keep the carrot root fly off. I will be planting several varieties including Early Nants and Flyaway.
I will sow the salsify, scorzonera, American landcress, swede and a few other things that I cannot remember at the moment.By the time I have done this and continued to dig over the new allotment I will have used up all my time and will want to come home.
I have used up all my seed compost now planting mange tout peas in sectioned trays. I will endeavour to get some more seed compost tomorrow.
I also need; some more lime, some chicken manure, peat free grow bags and some blue water pipe to hold up the nets. I think a trip to the garden centre is warranted.
