Happy St. David's Day

Hurrah for Spring

The crocuses are up again although this is a picture from last year.

Somehow the rest of February has slipped away and still nothing much has happened. There are a couple of pots of seedling asparagus plants, which might provide a crop in three years time. I've put some garlic in pots because that was the only way to get them started. A lot of lot of seeds have arrived.

One thing that did get planted in a hurry, the sea kale seeds from Chiltern Seeds. This is the third time I've tried to start this seaside gourmet's delight from seed. The seed is sent from cold storage so it's obviously very short lived and I've never yet managed to get any to germinate. If this batch fails then I'll have to buy some plants for the perennial patch.

All the seed potatoes have arrived. We've rather more BF15 seed tubers than we need, if anyone local to Newport Pagnell would like a handful.
