Last year I grew some carrots from seed – and chucked some spuds in the ground – the carrots worked but the spuds got blight – still got some nice little earlies though. We also grew some tomato plants in a grow-bag outside and got a few tasty trusses (one of the plants got blight too though – it was awfully damp last year)… although I didn’t really know about topping them…
Anyway – this year – I have gone a little overboard! I do love the bit where the seed germinates and bursts forth full of promise with its cute little cotyledon. Here’s some of the seeds I have planted this year:

  • Marjoram
  • Sweet Basil
  • Greek Oregana
  • Thyme
  • Summer Savory
  • Coriander
  • Parsley
  • Barlotta Lingua Di Fucco Nano
  • Carrot
  • Potato
  • Chinese Cabbage
  • Little Gem
  • Pumpkin
  • Red Onion
  • Pentland Brig Kale
  • Melon
  • Strawberry

Most of them were from Tucker’s Seeds but I also picked up a few cheap packets from Lidl.
I was going to bore you with an account of this year’s horticultural endeavors, but I found this great site called and will be detailing it all in excruciating detail (if I manage to find the time to update it in between watering everything, weeding and fighting slugs and snails!). This isn’t a gardening blog btw 😉
