First seeds planted this year. I'm probably a bit behing on previous years, not helped by not being able to find the propagator - must tidy up the cellar...!
After finding and cleaning it up, finally got round to planting this years chillies. I use the seed from last years chillies (Ring of Fire) - which begs the question why are chilli seed so expensive? I get more seeds from one chilli than I ever get from a packet of seed??? I also planted up some Padron (Spanish tapas type chillies) and Joe's Long, which I'm sure will be similar to the Ring of Fire. I've just sent off an order for some Hungarian Hot Wax as well - Mrs D doesn't request many specific varieties of plants, but this is one of them.
After last years disaster of no sweet peas (another request of Mrs D), I've made an earlier than normal start with them - which is probably still later than I should have put them in. So far I have Blue Velvet and Perfume Delight in, with Old Fashioned Mix on order too. I've not sure you can ever have a glut of sweet peas ;>)
Down on the plot, the garlic is finally showing signs of growing and the dafodills are just poking through the soil too. Unfortunately the bed with the dafs and tulips in is over-run with weeds so I've been having to dig it over, which probably isn't going to help them grow.
Must take camera to plot...
