I took the seeds out of the airing cupboard today and all of the tomatoes Lycopersicum esculentum have germinated. I put the pots into the cool greenhouse to grow on. I will prick them out into their own pots when they are a little bigger. The other tomatoes are doing well in the greenhouse.
None of the other seed I sowed has germinated yet. I will have my work cut out when they do.
Went down to the allotment this morning and continued with the hugelkultur bed until it started to rain. I put the weed turfs at the bottom of the trench this time because there may be some bind weed tucked away in it. This was covered with a layer of holly branches, leaves and turfs. It will give me a good raised bed to grow the climbing French beans on.
