My normal Friday routine is to slob around until Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4. But today the sun inspired me to go straight into the garden and sort out the cucumber seedlings, which seem too robust to be called that.
However, they were getting too cramped in their tiny pots on my bedroom windowsill, so for the time being they can luxuriate in a bit more space and fresh compost. The tray/pot they are now in was a freebie from a DIY store (thank you, B&Q) and it will make bringing them in of a night till they have hardened off just that bit easier. Quite how I am going to get them out for planting is another matter – I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it…..
Moving on, the aubergines are also getting past the point where they can tolerate being in their tiny pots, too. And having another homemade grow bag to the ready, the strongest of them has gone in there.
As the tomato plant I put in the other grow bag is almost exceeding the height limit of the cloche I put over it the other night, I’ve put the cover for the stand my neighbour gave me over it. Now let’s see if that blows away 😉
