Transplanting seedlings

Many of the seedlings in the greenhouse have grown big enough to transplant into larger pots and trays.  The Apium graveolens "Full White", Apium graveolens rapaceumVicia faba, Brassica oleracea "Belstar", and "Greensprouting", Brassica oleracea botrytis "Winter Alsmeer", Brassica oleracea capitata "Holand Winter White" and "Sherwood", Anthemis nobilis,  Anethum graveolens, Brassica oleracea caulo-rapa, Lactuca sativa "Webbs Wonderful",  and Brassica napus napo brassia.  

There are lots more seedlings to transplant but they will not suffer from having to wait for a couple of days.  The  Brassica oleracea capitata "Golden Acre Primo", Brassica oleracea botrytis "All the Year Round" and the Allium ascolonicum "Jermore" really need to be planted out in the allotment now.  I have the room, I have prepared the ground but I do not have the time at the moment.

There is absolutely no room in the greenhouse so I will have to plant some of the seedling in the allotment.

All of the turf at the allotment has been put onto the compost heap to break down and make some good compost.  The rocket that I was leaving to go to seed has fallen down in the winds and cold of Wednesday.  I will leave it to see if it still produces seed.
