Well this is an exciting time of year for me, its seed sowing time. This year Mr Rodd supplied seeds for the OC project, so rather than JPa having a vote on what to plant, I have taken a few of each of the seeds available. This way we should get a nice wide range of plants.
I decided to wait until after the Easter holidays to plant anything as it is warmer now and anything planted before might have died if not watered for the two week break. Well what a good idea, the sun is shinning and it feels well and truly as if Spring has sprung!
So far we have planted:
Parsley, Basil, Thyme, Dill, Peppers, Cucumber, Courgettes (round ones as well as the typical kind), Pumpkin, Butternut squash, Aubergine (a dark and a light variety), Tomatoes and Honey bear Squash.
We are now seeing the first few shoots appearing out of the soil and I plan on showing the tutor group these signs the next time JPa meet.
