Sowing time

It’s itching into spring now, though you might not realise it.

I dug out the seeds from last season (our ones from the real seed company haven’t yet arrived, it being only one day since we placed the order) and got a sowing. I have no faith many of the seedlings will make it, or even germinate. I’ve sown an arctic lettuce (should have sown about sept last year), rocket, chard, chillies, watercress etc but I hit upon an idea… Why not try planting kitchen spices? Obviously not the ground type but fennel, coriander, cumin etc.

I’ll keep you updated how they fare over the next few weeks.

I’ve also ordered a grow light to prevent them becoming too leggy, but they’re in the sunniest indoor spot that being our south facing front window!
