I went mad in Millets the other day and purchased lots and lots of seeds for planting a nice little veg garden. Today I planted a lot of them. It was rather harder work than I imagined.
I dug out an entire bed, removed all the weeds and stray bits of grass and thoroughly aerated the soil. My bag aches a bit now.
I have also planted lots of things today(all seeds) and have forgotten what I’ve put where. I have sown my sunflowers, pansies and lambs lettuce directly onto a bed (the soil is seriously chalky tho so I shall add some compost tomorrow) and I have planted tomato seeds, courgettes seeds and pumpkins into an array of little pots and propagators and they are all perched in a sunny spot outdoors.
Friday I have more sowing to do – I have sweet peas and runner beans to sow into the bed, and will plant some more pansies into some pots and tidy up the beds around a rose bush and the poor lonely strawberry plant that’s the only thing in the garden at the moment.
I might get some more strawbs too tho or save the space for my million of pumpkins that I’m aiming for!
I also am thinking about putting the rest of the pansies everywhere too, there were 90 seeds in the packet so I’m assuming the survive rate is low
