Jessica, you say that your seeds are all rotting off, indoor and out this year. It's been so cold and dark this year I think everything is taking a very long time to get going, and may rot off before that happens. Alternatively, is it old seed or very wet compost?
We may complain about the weather all rain and wind in the south-east at the moment but I am pleased with the harvesting of garden peas, carrots and beetroot so far this season.
Just noticed this pop into my inbox, and thought of you all here.
16th -18th March at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire
I've had a really bad year with veggies all in all this year. The rabbits have been even more voracious than ever (still working on the new Camp Bastion veg patch). Another disappointment was the onions which had bull necks. I've read that it's either too much Nitrogen (I didn't feed them at all) or that the seeds were planted too deep. I bought them as plugs from a local grower. Could the "seed too deep" problem have been carried over. Any comments appreciated as onions aren't usually a problem.
I've only just noticed your Jack Hargreaves tying onions video.
I did a video on tying onions a while back - just noticed it's been viewed over 10,000 times.
You've really got to hand it to this guy... growing his own wheat on his allotment to make his own bread..
I think I've got the other half of this episode somewhere – where he takes us through the growing of a bed of big onions and then in his kitchen he stuffs one with a fatty kidney, puts the two halves back together, wraps in bacon rashers pinned with sausage sticks and bakes – his 'kidney onions'
I've never been so early with the garden, everything set except runner beans, even main crop potatoes through & marrows a foot high (300mm). I just hope we don't have a late frost. Very dry but we had a shower Saturday.
Useing the hose pipe, I'm pleased I'm not on a meter.
I like the box Phil.I'm a peasent myself, make instead of buy but its bad for trade.
