At last the time came and I can start, very slowly, thinking of sowing some seeds.
The first are radishes ‘Scarlet globe’. I don’t want to grow them outside yet, it is far too early, so I put a couple of rows in one of the beds in the greenhouse.
The next were some shallots. I decided on ‘Zebrune’, an unusual long shallot, very tasty and easy to slice. Those I put in two different containers, one being the latest development, my egg-shell planters. These I will keep on the kitchen windowsill and gradually transplant into bigger and bigger pots and finally plant them out on the allotment.
This time I can take it easy but soon everything will be going at a fair pace. Bring it on!
