Last week I started sowing seeds indoors – trying to get an early start for both tender plants like peppers and aubergines that require a long growing season as well as for an early crop of other vegetables. The plan is to germinate them inside then move them outside under cover once they are established.
My laundry draws up the heat from the fireplace and also traps the sun from the window, so it is proving to be a great greenhouse!
Peas and broad beans on the left – to fill in the gaps where the young plants have been killed by the cold. Other sowings:
Cauliflower géant d’hiver
Red pepper Lamunyo
Pepper Doux d’Espagne
Seed potatoes arrived this week, so they are spread out to start chitting.
It’s exciting to be getting started!
