I managed to squirrel an afternoon off

Some light rain's been forecast for around these parts so seeing as I managed to squirrel an afternoon off, thanks to a very nice paying taxi job, and that I also like to plant seeds before rain, I set to it.

In went a row of beetroot seeds plus I seeded up a punnet of rocket as well.

I also have some Leek seedlings planted that had reached the stage where they needed to be planted out as well.

Everything else is going well though, I'm getting some nice asparagus and I'm also harvesting lettuce, spring onions and spinach from earlier plantings. My broad beans have been flowering profusely and are now setting pods (broad bean risotto here I come).

I also planted some parsnip seeds about three weeks ago, for the first time ever, and I'm proud to say they have sprouted into a nice row of little parsnip seedlings.

I'll have to start planting some beans, cucumber and corn when I next get the chance but for now that's about it.

Cheers and happy Gardening


P.S. There is one other thing but that's going to have to be a surprise for my next post, tomorrow or Tuesday, with some luck.
