I haven't heard of Angela - did you grow them from seed or did you buy the plants? Would be great to hve a vareity that can be started early.

Yes Rex, they're outside, though with frost covering if necessary. Half a dozen early plants that are nice and healthy at this stage. They're a cultivar called Angela. I've never put mu tomatoes out so early...just thought I would give it a go, with protection, and see what transpires.

I have just planted my tomato seeds so jealous to hear that you have already planted your tomatoes - is this outside? Our broadbeans are still in flowering stage - no beans appearing yet, though I was a little late planting them. Still picking broccolli, leeks, and celery.

Have planted the first of my tomato plants. They're under cover if a frost is nigh, but open during the day. Good and sturdy plants. I'm still picking broad beans, so it's too soon to pull them from the garden. The leeks are going well, as are the lettuces, fennel, kale, carrots and celeriac. I have another bed to weed, box up and lift, and fill with growing medium. This will give me another 40 square feet of garden. Will do this over the next couple of weekends, I hope. Managed to find white alpine strawberry plants today, so that's a bonus...they're delish, and don't get eaten by the birds, as they think the're not ripe. Looking forward to all the herbs sprouting forth now that the worst of winter is over. My mints are doing well, and have new growth.

Dug 3 holes for the apple trees that I am picking up tomorrow - found lots of bits of metal, one of the holes is now heaps bigger than it needed to be...
Then weeded some of the old herb garden, uncovered the iris's that I was given last year and potted up as I don't know what color they will be. They have started to grow!! Excellent.
Just came inside for a cuppa, might go and plant some flax and eucalypti now, before feeding out.

I often read that people plant their courgettes and cucumbers into mounds - does anyone know the reason for this?

Going out to water the front garden. Found a patch of heart's ease and I am loving it.

Rain rain rain - just too wet to get out into the garden. Will have to browse garden books instead.

Sowed lotsa flowers and herbs today aswell as many different varietys of chillis.....so exciting! the first borage flowers are already out and you can sense spring in amongst the beds.....also sowed phacellia freely all around the fejoias as well as many other wee corners round the house....im sure the landlord wont mind having them for years to come : ).

transplant the last of the tomatoes and eggplant into the front beds because it looks like no one loves it yet! They are not doing so well where they are.
Picking chili peppers and tomatoes today.
Weed... weed... weed
