thought i would update you on my seeds.....this is the tray on friday morning....2 carrots in the forground, the lettuces in the middle and the 2 cucumbers behind....
and.....this is the tray this Easter Sunday.....left to right i have early carrots in the 1st column, late carrots in the second(one seedling just breaking soil), 3rd column are lettuces, 4th back is lettuce and in front is a cucumber. 5th column is cucumber at the back and cherry tomatoes in front, 6th is plum toms at back and a runner bean just poking thru(along with something else which i dont think is connected to the bean!) and the final pod has another runner bean!. when i went to bed at midnight last night there were only 2 carrots and no toms up at all....the miracle of nature!.
tomorrow i am going to fill the empty 5 pods probably with early carrots and maybe some lettuce.
watching all this grow over the course of the week has been incrediable....i just hope i can secure an allotment soon, otherwise it will go into a corner of Anns garden!.
