There are now several pepper and aubergine plants growing, and the leeks are doing well.
There was a minor disaster - my little girl knocked over the cabbage tray. I was beside myself but I managed to tangle out the seedlings and prick them out into a new tray where funnily enough they seem to be doing well! I must sow some more cauli though, only 3 survived that misadventure. The red cabbage and broccoli are doing quite well though.
I sowed the first lot of tomatoes - I will do some more, as I have plenty of seeds and I like to give them away to friends, also we will be having a swop at our lot soon so that could be good things to swop.
I sowed several of:
- Gardener's Delight "Bright red, bite-size, extra sweet fruits are full of flavor."
- Pannovy "High quality round fruit, Good flavour"
- Moneymaker (29p from Lidl, couldn't resist) "An extremely popular variety. Produces firm red fruit of medium size. Tall, vigorous growing and heavy cropping."
- Marmande "a classic beefsteak variety which produces the large, ribbed tomatoes that are commonly seen in the Continent. "
- Tigerella - I grew these last year and they are quite good, red with yellowish stripes, smallish fruit but sweet and firm, although the skin is a bit tough esp if you cook them, lovely in a salad though.
- Totem "A dwarf stocky bush variety, both early and heavy yielding, with large trusses of crimson tomatoes produced low down on the stem. "
