Those that know me might suggest that I’m a bit of Type A personality or JFDI if you prefer. Personally, I just like to get on with things…
With that in mind, April always feels like it is the hurry up month. Seeds are sown, they get cossetted and fussed over and then…nothing. Or so it seems. Then I’m rewarded with the first signs of tiny green shoots peeking through the soil. It doesn’t matter that I’ve been sowing seeds on an annual basis for nine years now, it is still REALLY exciting and satisfying.
Then along comes May and BAM! everything seems to rocket out of their seed trays at the same time, demanding to be potted on, hardened off and planted out…
This is my seedling status: The April and May versions.
Lets start with the Carmen cucumbers. Tiny fruits only two weeks after potting into their final pots.
Then the flowers. Cosmos, Zinnias, Scabious and rescue geraniums in April
and now (the beans are still thinking about it though)
Here are the beetroot and lettuce after a second sowing and a stern talking to – five days to get to this stage.
How are your seedlings coming on?
