Seedlings

With all this rain over the past few days everything is doing well in the garden. I took a photo of the French Breakfast radishes this morning and they are looking ok. I didn't make it to the pub last night, so apologies for my absence to all the others. From reading various emails today; it seems that most of us were ill. Get well soon to Lynda, Nicola & Paula and sorry to Ann and Janet that I couldn’t make it.

I am looking forward to the long weekend and more pottering about in the garden. The weather forecast is good so I intend to make the most of it. It's a little too early to start planting all the beans etc so they will have to stay in my little greenhouse and my dining room for a little while longer. The peas I planted a week ago in my recycled toilet rolls are doing well, with signs of a good root system at the bottom. Thanks Danielle for the tip, I will use this in future as it will save a fortune on plastic pots and will keep the roots undisturbed for planting. And wrapping some damp newspaper at the bottom helped to keep all the compost in!
Ian said that my little vegetable paperback book arrived in the post this morning. So I now have a little reference book to show me what I should be doing each month! I’ll have a read up this evening.

Have a great Bank Holiday weekend and Happy Gardening.
