Week 13

3 May – 10 May

As planned I’ve put in my sweetcorn and sunflowers young plants, they were all grow from seeds at home. Also I have filled in the gaps of the plot with carrots seeds, radish seeds, onions set and beetroot seeds. In between the board beans plants I have inserts 4 little jam lattices.

In between growing and weeding I did some picking too, I’ve started thinning some seedlings and crowded young veg, and made use of them to start my culinary activity, happy to check it out from Thin Out Greens from my Vegetplotlot Feast page.

The cabbage plants seems growing strong and generally plot 25A looking good….

Go back to my tadpoles, check them out this week, they seems OK with the frog in the same pond so far……
