What I am growing this year


A very short blog post tonight. I have added a page called 'Sowing the Seeds'. This page will be a on-going record of what I am sowing, what has germinated and what actually grows.
Chive flower from 2011

I will up-date this page probably every fortnight as seeds germinate, or fail to germinate as the case may be.

Let the sowing and growing begin.

  1. What a good idea! I was thinking I need a way to keep track of my efforts this year. Great plan, and good luck with the germination!

    1. I usually keep a diary, but decided to just do it on-line instead.

    1. I love growing chives at home, esp. when they flower they attract the bees.

    1. Oh yes I am. Guess what I've just been given some by my Dad from his newly acquired allotment. It was getting trodden on, so I took it.

  7. What a good idea.I think I'll add an similar page to my Emerging From the Undergrowth blog http://okallotments.blogspot.co.uk/as a record.
    My buying of lots more seeds this year ready for my new allotment as well as for my raised beds at home (turning some into potagers)has been a bit random.Includes fresh supplies of lettuce and trombone courgette seeds from Madeira which seem to have grown well in my north of England garden before.
    Love your recipes.Have been perfecting the cabbage and lentils.I'll need 100 different ways to cook swiss chard soon.
    By the way which fonts do you use on your blog?

    1. Hello Shinny,
      Nice to make your acquaintance.

      I have a number of chard recipes on my blog already, but there will be many more in the future.

      I use papyrus font on my blog. Its not a blogger option, I just cut and paste, a little more time consuming, but worth it I think as it matches my blog header font.

    1. What is stopping you from growing tomatoes in your balcony? You should if you can :)
