A morning of gardening
Today in bed five I planted broccoli (9 x summer green), red cabbage (4 x red drum), cauliflower (4 x all year round) and sowed 2 curved rows of carrots (topweight).
It's a bit hard to see anything as the seedlings seem to merge into the mulch, which happens to be 'goaty straw'. The goat pen had a big clean out this morning too, with 3 wheelbarrow loads of manurey goaty straw that went straight onto this bed and also our raspberry patch. In the greenhouse most of the winter tomatoes have come up. They were sown in seed raising mix (bought) in a plastic meat tray from the supermarket, with drainage holes punched in the bottom. I have found this method works well.
They were ready to be pricked out into individual cells containing home made compost to continue growing for a few more weeks.
