What’s the disadvantage of blinds? Well, when you don’t raise them for a few days as you’re off to work before you need to, things like seedlings tend to get forgotten.
Fortunately, all six tomato seedlings, three organic cherry and three stripey, seemed to come back to life and today they have been repotted and moved to a difference window where they are more likely to be observed in a timely fashion.
Whilst in the shed with trowel and compost, I decided to sow some peas – in pots, not the ground. Apart from the fact that the soil may still be too cold, having seen the gusto with which the bird population has been digging, I would rather they stood some chance of survival in the shed. So, this is the first attempt at using it as a quasi-greenhouse.
The tray in the photo was actually maiden with tomato seedlings to take back to the house. The peas may flourish in the shed but I think this would be the death of the tomatoes at this point. By my reckoning though, if at least in theory peas could survive outside right now, they will be fine in the shed.
