Its All Grow Around Here
The veg patch is well and truly on the way now as everything put on lots of growth,
The poly tunnel is filling up fast, the courgettes are not far off producing there first harvest
Cucumber are starting to climb and the tomatoes are setting fruit trusses.
While everything is on the way and seeds are sown for Autumn and Winter crops apart from weeding and feeding there isn't much else to do until the harvest gets well and truly going.
When out collecting animal feeds I popped into the garden centre fatal never pop into a garden centre for just a browse, I came away with these
Chickpeas and Lentils seeds, something new for me to try, I did a bit of looking up on the web to see what is involved
Got some helpful information here on Growing Chickpeas and Growing Lentils as we are at the end of the season for getting them going I thought I would try some of them as a trial ready for next year
I will keep you update on how they go
I also picked up these
Its so nice to see the seed companies doing something different from F1 hybrids all the time, the lettuce I shall get some on the go now to put in the tunnel the others will be for next year.
I have already started off onions from seed for next year I want to try and get away from buying in onion sets each year, I might even let a couple run to seed.
I intend to keep some of our own garlic cloves and potatoes for next year too.
I also got these they were on offer for members at half price
I have started them off and have them sitting in the porch were its a bit cooler for them.
Everyone has just been fed so I must get the watering done now then I can have dinner :-)
