Out early this morning to pick capsicum and spring onions. Lovely fresh morning and equally lovely fresh veg.
The capsicum is in the same bed as the tomatos so I will try the “hot house” experiment on it as well as the tomatos and see how I go.
Meanwhile the seeds I planted the other day are not quite up yet but should be any day (crossing fingers) those seeds that are up are growing strongly and I can see some thinning might be necessary to get decent sized crops. I hate thinning out seedlings. It seems to take forever for them to grow – then I ruthlessly pull out those I don’t need but there isn’t room in the vegie garden for all of them.
After the vegetable picking excercise I noticed that at last my dwarf sweet peas have finally started to shoot. They are planted in a bed next to the pergola and should (fingers and toes crossed) give a really good display over the winter months. Does anyone else soak their sweet pea seeds over night before planting them to help them grow? I did this time but not sure it made any difference to them germinating any faster.
Off to continue making salads. An important Birthday tomorrow but will blog about it then.
