Started propagating a few things today... Leeks, cabbages, the first few early tomatoes and some herbs. Created propagating trays out of old fruit and vegetable containers from the supermarket, and used old toilet rolls as individual pots for the soon to be seedlings. Bought more seeds today but most of the rest are either to be started propagating in March or April or planted outside in April or May. Also bought some red onion sets and shallot sets that are to go into the ground next weekend. It will be the first things to be planted in our newly prepared allotment. It is very exciting! The picture below was taken yesterday! It is unbelievable that this is the same as the completely overgrown plot that we only took over 2 months ago.


  1. Wow! Nice job, I'm so jealous! Your neighbours plots seem overgrown compared to yours.

  2. Yes, it is very exciting. I remember when I first started growing veggies and fruit, a couple of years ago, how excited I was. Glad to read that you're into recycling too.

  3. Your plot looks great and its great to see that you are using recycled materials on your plot! Keep up the good work!
