I bought seeds of second earlies yesterday and have put them in the egg box incubators in the plastic greenhouse.These ones are Maris Peers, ideal for wedges,boiling and salad.There were 12 for 2.99e and are rated as high yield.
Wilja another second early, ideal for boiling roasting and chips so that should be all tastes catered for.There were 10 for 2.99 but the two together were only 5.00e.It must be a sign of the huge interest in growing your own that there is such a lot of seed potatoes available and also a lot of different varieties. We have not had these two before so it will be interesting to compare yields and taste.
The first earlies Colleen are chitting nicely and we have had no unwelcome visitors so far but I am keeping ,my fingers crossed!
The cauliflower and cabbage are finally setting their second true leaves, they will be transplanted into 3" pots early next week to grow on and I will plant more seeds to stagger the harvest (hopefully)
The Cos lettuce are growing in their planters and the frosty nights and cold temps don't seem to have bothered them
Today has been very windy so I tied the shelves to the greenhouse frames with cable ties I am hoping they will also secure the frame in position, last year in the mini greenhouses the shelves blew down on a really windy night.

I was delighted to find she had a post and links to Moon planting and gardeners calender.I have signed up for the Gardeners newsletter Lynda so I will receive an email each Thursday with a planting guide for the week!
