It’s that wonderful time of year again when seed sowing can begin in earnest and every windowsill in the house is packed with tiny little seedlings. I don’t tend to sow anything before the start of March and so this last week has been a flurry of activity having sowed most of my chillis, tomatoes, peppers and tomatillos in my shiny new heated propagator.
As part of the wonderful Twitter #SeedCircle16, I got plenty of exciting new varieties of chillis and tomatoes to try. In the propagator right now I have;
Tomatoes – Scotland Yellow, Veepro Paste, Purple Ukraine, Cuban Flower, Red Buffalo Horn, Maskotka, Big Yellow Zebra, Tiger Cherry, Galina.
Chillis and Peppers – Cayenne, Bolivian Rainbow, Loco, Sweet Aji, Albertos Locato, Trepadiera Werner, King of thr North, Sheepnose.
Tomatillos – Rio Grande Verde, Purple.
In the greenhouse, I’ve also started an early crop of both peas (Markhana) and broadbeans (Imperial Longpod). Hopefully, these should be ready for planting out in a few weeks once the soil has started to warm up.
As always, I’d love to know what everyone else has been sowing, growing or harvesting this week. So please let me know please in the comments or via Twitter.
