Over the last few days, I noticed seedlings starting to appear in the compost round the base of the one-year-old tomato plant in my dining room.
Maybe it’s wishful thinking – and time will tell – but if they are of that variety, I’m intrigued as to how so many got there, as any tomatoes that didn’t make it to the table got fermented in the bokashi, as far as I remember.
On a different note, the mangetout I sowed indoors the other day have germinated. I had been concerned that the seeds were too old, as they haven’t germinated outside. But clearly, it is the cold that’s putting them off.
There might be snow overnight, so it is unlikely they’ll be poking their heads out the ground tomorrow, either. But then, a second shoot appeared yesterday on the rhubarb, so you never know, do you!
