With the weather forecast to improve over the weekend, I took the opportunity to get some of my vegetables planted. It’s been very cold here and nothing has grown in the past few weeks. This is how I had left the veg plot:
I got busy on my hands and knees for an hour or so, first into the ground were 20 Brussell Sprout plants. It’s been recommended to me not to bother with seeds for some plants, because they won’t develop as they should.
Next into the ground were the Leeks, and then the Lettucs (below). I’ve had neck problems for the last week or two and it was starting to play up so I left it at this for the evening.
I still have broccoli and cauliflower plants to get planted, probably at some point on Saturday, or Monday evening. I’ll then get more of the seed into the ground. The final thing I did was cover the plants with a fleece. Hopefully this will protect them from the cold over the next week or so – as well as preventing pests from getting to them too. And yes, I had to anchor the fleece down – it’s rather breezy here just now!
