More planting

Yesterday was another planting day. I got 40 onion sets planted.  I have gone with Radar and Electric (a red onion) and have planted them in 2 blocks of 20 each.  However I have 30 of each left and have been advised by members of the UKVegGardeners Forum that they cannot be kept and planted in spring.  As I don’t want to plant any more of these, some of them are up for grabs if anyone would like them.  I’ll offer some to my neighbour too.

Also to go in were peas.  I have the 7 that I put into the pots and Jiffys but as they are starting to grow now I thought I would just get on and put some straight into the ground.  I dug over a patch and then made 4cm deep holes with a pencil and dropped one pea into each hole.  I have no idea of the spacing but I put in a total of 46 seeds in a large block.  They are Pea Meteor.

The turnips I sowed in the patio grow bag are doing well, however the roots were starting to swell above the surface.

Once more I took advice from UKVegGardeners and Flighty said they should be covered.  So a combination of thinning out, pushing down and earthing up now has them covered and on their way.  There are only about 5 or 6 in there but I don’t think I have ever eaten a turnip so I’m not sure if I will like them.  It is all experimenting at this stage!

And look…….the anemone must have been listening yesterday and has opened one of its flowers…….
