I decided to follow suit and post a Six on Saturday as inspired by The Mindful Gardener and also the creator The Propagator. Seems like the same things are sprouting such as rhubarb and peony so I can’t post them again.
As we have had such a grey start to March compared to this time last year in London a lot of my garden and plants are taking a slow run up (before the snow Spring (Almost)). Now, I feel like outside is just a giant mud pit so my Six on Saturday have been inspired by indoor gardening. As I hold my breath for the thermometer to creep high enough that I can plant outside, my indoor garden is almost growing vegetables without ever making outside.
This courgette ‘One Ball’ was the first to bloom under lights; tomatoes in the background against the window but even with the morning sun it’s not enough light so a couple have started etiolating and tried to put them back under the lights before they became too leggy The seedlings and other larger vegetables are being hardened off in a vain attempt to entice spring. Lettuce; carrot; beetroot and radish are growing in clumps as I test out the Charles Dowding’s clump method.
Chitting potatoes are growing roots as I put them in a little soil to get a head start on growing outside; bathed in the light of the uv grow lamp.
