Real sprouting progress

On this fine Easter Sunday morning, I am pleased to announce that I now have three baby courgette seedlings. Looks like they are going to need to be given a new home sooner rather than later.

By comparison, the cayenne peppers beside them are not quite so vigorous but they have had a tumultuous time, too. On the kitchen windowsill is definitely a better place for them.

Last but by no means least, my red cabbage seedlings are looking more robust than they did when I rescued them from the floor of the greenhouse last week. Can’t wait till I’m eating some of these in salad πŸ™‚

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

      Yes, that’s how I feel πŸ™‚

      Potted up the courgettes yesterday evening and was amazed by how strong their roots were. It’s the first time I’ve grown them and it is quite a revelation.
