The forecast cold snap seems to have passed us by and April is almost upon us, so the next batch of seeds have been sown. Red cabbage, spinach, beetroot, peas and mangetout have all been sown two-to-a-pot. They have all gone straight up to the greenhouse along with the potted leeks, which are doing well. Another small batch of leeks have been sown too to top up the numbers. They will need to be brought on at home before they are potted up and ready for the greenhouse.
The broad beans and parsnips in the ground are doing well. The blackcurrant and gooseberries are coming into leaf. The winter onions and garlic are doing well too.
