|The greenhouse within the greenhouse|
You can see the tray on the second shelf and my trusty orange dibber. I am taking them out of this tray and putting them into a sectioned tray. The brassicas are on the top shelf in 3 inch pots. My tomatoes are on this shelf too. They really need to be pricked out into larger pots as well. There are three trays of peas under the onions. I have just sown them so they will not be harmed by having the onion tray on them. The spuds are chitting well and I will be putting these out in April. These are pink fir apple and Kestrel. If you look carefully you will see the Oca at the front of the small tray.
|Sweet pea seedlings|
These are the February sown sweet peas. They look a darn site better than the autumn sown ones did a couple of months ago. All these have been pinched out and a lot of them have already started to grow their side shoots. I will be planting these out as soon as I have put the canes up for them. They are quite hardy and a few frosts will not hurt them. Indeed, there are some that have germinated from last years seed in the soil on the allotment. I am going to plant these feral sweet peas with the others and see what colours they are.
|Range of different seeds and seedlings|
More sweet peas at the back and then the onions that I had just
pricked out. The leeks are in a 3 inch pot and will be pricked out tomorrow. Then there are some cuttings but I have forgotten what of. I think that these are all growing but I have lost a lot of them. Web's Wonderful lettuce in the next tray are doing well. I haven't used the sectioned trays for these because they will transplant well even if their roots are disturbed a little. Next come the pea trays. I have 9 trays of peas so there will be three trays per row on the allotment. This will be fine.
I will have to sweep the floor of the greenhouse. I always get seed compost everywhere when I am planting seeds.
