Spring is here

The bulbs in tea cups (Narcissus Tete a Tete) are flowering, looking good and proving very popular at WESC, particularly as we recently celebrated St Davids day.

The salad seeds (Little gems) we sowed are doing well and need to be pricked out.

Another job we have done this week is chitting some seed potatoes. (Chitting means sprouting the tuber – putting it, most eyes upright, in a light, cool but frost-free place)  This year we will be growing potatoes in bags.

We planted out the peas (sugar snap) that we sowed indoors and enjoyed building a pea frame, wigwam structure.

Also, the broad beans are looking good, soon we will need to put the next level of support in place.

We sowed some leek seeds into plug trays and next week we will try planting into coir discs, which should be fun.

And finally good news, we found a worm in our raised vegetable beds, we must be doing a good job preparing the soil...
