After a long winter and an early spring where I have been away travelling for work and leisure, this weekend I've been getting the garden back online.
The plan is to grow crops that I know we're going to eat and that don't require inordinate amounts of time or effort to nurture. Crops that we eat regularly and that we can't get more cheaply or easily from the greengrocers.
On Saturday I planted out the following:
- New potatoes
- Jerusalem artichoke
I've also got some tomato seedlings and yellow courgette seedlings coming on in the cold frame.
It's now late Sunday afternoon and I've just finished sowing lots of seeds into pots for propagation:
- Tumbler and Maskotka tomatoes
- Green courgette
- Butternut squash
- Spring onions
I'll do a second set of some of these in about a month's time to give a second crop.
