It was one of those days here yesterday (weatherwise). The sun was shining brightly in the sky, so after watering all the plants in the greenhouse, I took some of them outside, including the dwarf french beans & peas. After about 30 minutes and the war on weeds = me winning, it had cloulded over and felt as few spits in the air, so the plants all went in the Greenhouse again!
Then the sun came out as quickly as it had disappeared - no more clouds and no spits of rain, so I decided that enough was enough. Come rain or shine, those peas need to be outside - NOW! As you can see they were getting very pot bound, and it hasn't really been warm to put them out until now, apart from the odd day sunbathing.
I had to carefully untangled all the roots as delicately as I could and I managed to get most of them loose and complete, into the hole in the ground in one piece. Tatty is going to be looking after the 2nd row of peas - the 1st row I put out about a month ago, by the greenhouse & parsnips.
Next - I keep on finding these little sprouts from the ground. Yes you've guessed it, they are last years potatoes! Now I have dug, dug, rotavated & raked this piece of plot many a time this year, and still these sprouts, sprout! I can't believe I have missed so many spuds!! there must be at least 7 of these & I am going to try and leave them be and see what happens.
Next job was to plant out the radishes, so I put them in between the parsnips, as the parsnips will take ages, and the radishes will be a fast growing crop.(can you see the first lot of peas to the left??)
Ah, my spinach - yes it's doing well!
As are my beetroot, but there were a few patches, so
I did a quick repair job, and sowed more seed in the gaps!
