    You are so organised, I am a little behind but getting there, hope to get some parsnips,carrots,peas, broad beans seeded or plants out this week. Bit of a rush and having to hold off on some stuff as I/we are coming over the pond to California next Saturday, can't wait!!

  • UK to CA is a LONG trip! Enjoy.

    I think I will take you up on that martini idea Robin…. Especially now that its Sunday and I have finished a second day of garden work, at my parents garden. I will even post a photo of it – I haven;t done that in a while.

  • How are the crimsons doing or is this your first sowing? I have started some in pots and they are taking a long time to germinate. I keep opening up the rootrainer and they are all sprouting just taking a while.

  • The crimsons are doing very well from my first sowing on March 17. Probably 100% germination and pretty 3-5 inch plants. I will post photo this week as they have very nice shape leaves.
