This is the Dill which was repotted last week and put outdoors in the mini greenhouse.It is growing upwards quickly.I have heard of the herb but not used it before I think it is supposed to go well with potato salad ,I will have to read up on its uses as it looks as if we will have quite a bit of it.The Basil which again was repotted into individual pots but quite a lot more of it!Basil is also a good companion plant for tomatoes and asparagus, it has a lot of culinary uses as well and I think is used to make pesto.I will have to google how to do that if these all survive.
Herbs still on the windowsill indoors. The sage is slow but coming on,marjoram doing well and also the thyme after a slow start.The parsley has now reduced to 2 minuscule seedlings ,for such a popular herb I did not think it would be a problem to grow from seed!
The anthirrinum (snapdragons)are doing well but only on one side of the tray!Calabrese are showing and another sowing of lettuce this one is butterhead.
Squash has to be the star performer and a little scary the way it shoots up! These were sown on the 16th, 8 days ago and one of them is about 2ins high already.
I have been out on the plot nearly every day but have not had time to take photos as I am usually running for the school! Lots of what we can call cosmetic work done and it is starting to look good. I will do an update on that tomorrow as we have lots of new plot holders who are working up a storm.
We have had a seed swap going in the tearoom with seeds and seed potatoes so the newcomers can try a little of everything, we may have a plant swap soon as we will all have lots of extra plants.
