I've taken a look at this blog for this time last year and we are starting things a little later than last year. We intended to do this to give some stuff a better start and so things got less of a shock when they went out. Today thirty sweet peas were sown in pots today, some for home but some for the allotment. We started the chitting the parsnip seeds on wet paper again. It worked well last year, so we will try it again. It is a different variety this year: White Gem, last year we had Patriot. We have a huge number of seeds in the packet which probably means we will get very few to germinate. Our spinach is sprouting well, so it will go up to the greenhouse shortly. The weather forecast is for a colder spell next week but also for some rain which we badly need.
