• First spring onions

    These are White Lisbon. They were sown in modules indoors 15/2 and planted out 15/3. We have sown them in “clumps”, with 6-7 seeds in each module. Now we are starting to harvest one from every clump, making room for the others to keep growing. We’ll try sowing them again in the autumn to see if we can get an early spring harvest next year.

  • Peas at last!

    This is Sugar Ann, a type of sugar snap. We sowed the seeds in modules indoors on the 28th February and planted the little seedlings out on the 16th March. We then covered them with fleece until they established themselves and the earth warmed up a bit. It is a dwarf type and does not need much support. And it’s sweet with a lovely crunch!
