Week 3 Year 3: First Early Potatoes, Sowing Seeds and growing from seedlings…

Another busy week down the Allotment and in the garden:

The remaining two sets of First Early Potatoes were planted in the Potato Raised Bed (with my Red Duke of York) joined by Sharpe’s Express and Homeguard First Earlies:

And new seeds sown in the greenhouse: Aubergine, Romanesco broccoli also known as Roman cauliflower, Broccolo Romanesco, Romanesque cauliflower or simply Romanesco which is because I’ve never had much success with traditional cauliflowers on my plot. And some Purple Sprouting broccoli and Red Savoy Cabbage: a new Brassica Raised Bed will be grown this year (as you can probably tell from my seed selection).

And good to see some growth coming already from the seeds that I have planted. Already there are signs of life with my Courgettes, Celery, Red Peppers and Basil.

And after a few weeks of growth, it was time to pot on my Ailsa Craig onions which are doing well. These might be my award-winning onions which I plan to enter into the Fulham Horticultural Show (later in the year). Will have to see if they do fatten up and grow as planned!

So back to the Plot!
