I can't take any credit for the sowing of a single seed this year so far though I have been present at the buying of my Sweet Peas plants, the Broccoli and it's just happened, the Strawberries :)
Here are my lovely Sweet Peas - three different types and they are ready to get planted - eek, exciting! From left to right I have:
* 'Galaxy' which looks like they are going to be reds and pinks
* The very Royal Jubliee themed red, white and blue, 'Spencer Mix' and
* 'Flower Arranger's Delight' which is all lovely delicate pinks
Sadly I wasn't able to get my all time faves 'Cupani' which are gorgeous purple and pinks in the one petal :( Nevermind twas my own fault for not being on the ball sooner. Still, they are going to be lovely and I shall be surrounding myself with many vases of them and living up to the Holywood Goddess view I have of myself, hehehe. Got to love yourself first, right?
The Purple Sprouting Broccoli...
The Strawberries are 'Elsanta'...ummm no photo as well I can't be bothered and they are still in the car I think *blush*
So onto the babies that Andrew has so loving planted into the soil and has gently nurtured into live so far.. The Sweetcorn ('Swift') was an epic failure, we only got one out of the first attempt as they all rotted but this little fellow, grow little fighter, grow! We'll be planted tomorrow and watched closer and watered less.
The Celeriac ('Monarch') and it is doing absolutely fantastic, seedlings all over the show. Lucky I am so fond of the stuff. Seems every single seed that was sprinkled just wanted to grow :) I hate the bit when they get thinned out - I generally leave that to Andew too, wow I am such a baby!
So we're off the the plot in a moment and I will take more photos (I can't help myself) of the beds that have stuff done to them and get that list of what has been sown direct, though I won't bore you with photos of empty looking beds :)
Here's a pic of Maggie's cute wee butt to keep you going until later....
