Planting Tomato Seeds

I am going to plant some Tomato Toten F1 Hybrids tomorrow.  I found these seeds in the shed. I don't know how long they have been there but they have never been opened.  If they don't grow then I will be no worse off.  If they do then it is a bonus. 

As you can see all the sweet peas have gone over.  Bit of a disaster.  Not a pretty site at all.  I doubt if I will be able to rescue any of them.  Never mind.  I have bought new seed and only allowed myself 8 varieties.
Blue Danube
Mollie Rilstone
Valerie Harrod.
They are all exhibition varieties and all ones that I have grown before.  This is getting to be an expensive hobby. 
I also bought 5x 2.5kg bags of kestrel potatoes.  
The Ailsa Craig onions have germinated and I have put them out in the cold greenhouse.  I am hoping that they will survive. 


  1. You cannot beat the flavour of home grown tomatoes. So packed with flavour. You won't regret growing your own.

    Happy New Year to you.

  2. Might be a bit early for planting though mangocheeks.
    Wish I could cook like you!!!
