I felt in a bad mood when I got home from work this evening. And the best thing I could do was get my gardening gloves on and sort out more seedlings.
On Saturday, I had placed the newly acquired tomato plant on a bar stool by the back door, as there is plenty of light for it in that position. Then I remembered the shelves one of my neighbours had given me a few years back.
I had tried using the shelves (with a cover) in the back garden. But guess what? They blew down… No idea, really, why I thought the greenhouse would fare better!
Anyway, the shelves then migrated to my bedroom but there was insufficient light on the lower ones for it to be truly useful. So, they ended up in the Wendy house. Useful for storing horticultural fleece but not much else.
Now, they are loaded up with courgette and aubergine seedlings. There is also a pot with the remaining pumpkin seed. I must get another packet of the latter, though, to increase the chance of a pumpkin crop as we wouldn’t want to be pumpkin-less come Halloween, would we now?
The end of October is a long way off, however, and there is a lot of growing to be done. And I am going to have a job finding space for all the seedlings, should they flourish. But I’ll think about that another day 🙂
