Wednesday 13th May 2015

I had planned to sow a lot of herbs yesterday but that never materialized so today I sowed:
Hamburg Parsley, Marjoram, Flat Leaf Parsley and Curly Leaf Parsley, Fennel , Sage , Dill , Basil Dark Bush and Dark Opal , Coriander
As well as : Courgette , Cabbage , Mustard Greens , Pak Choi , Mizuna , Mustard Oriental Pizzo , Hungarian Wax Pepper , Quinoa Red and White, Tomato Glorioso (from seeds collected on May 1st) , Celtuce , Black Salsify , Cucumbers (Bedfordshire Prize and Later Diva).
Small seed trays in the greenhouse were sown with Aubrietia and Nicotiana .
Elsewhere in the back garden I emptied the small herb garden I have of the yellow flowered poppies , transferring the plants to a small neglected area of land to the rear of our property that I am slowly tidying up and bringing in to cultivation. 32 sweet pea plants ,sown from self collected seeds back in January ,that I have been growing in root trainers for the first time this year were planted out around 2 sides of the herb garden. I must say that despite the price (almost £10 including postage) the 32 cell root trainer have proved to be a success . Now to see if it works as well on edible peas.
Managed to spend 2 hours on the allotment in the evening. Sown Parsnips (Hollow Crown & Guernsey) , Carrots ( Early Nantes& Royal Change may Red), Radish (French Breakfast 3) and Beetroot Boltardy in a bed where I sowed similar on 29th March but none appeared to have survived.
