Good luck !

As there are no fresh veg in my local shops, I want to get an early start so I can plant out as soon as the weather is suitable and the plants big enough. I think we are in for a long haul with the virus.

you inspired me and this afternoon I sowed :
tomato Roma [mini plum] and Harbinger [salad type]
Cucumber petita [ a half sized fruit]
Pumpkin Jack o lantern
Beans- runner, broad, French, cobra
lettuce: cos, webs, and lollo rosso
carrots Nantes
peppers; Sweet and Jalapeno
spring onions

and some annuals for the borders : larkspur, 10 week stock, snapdragons, alyssium, cleome and a very late sowing of sweet peas.

Rather cold outside 6 oC overnight, last night, but they are all tucked up inside at home at present. I normally wouldn't sow so early. I thought I would use this site as a diary to monitor when I sow and their progress.
Only a few of each to see how they fare.

Most of mine are either in the greenhouse/coldframe or propagator. Parsnips are directly in the ground along with the onion sets.

25 March, the 2 pots of lettuce have germinated, 3 or 4 Cauli germinated.
