Square foot plot -getting crowded and green
My seeds are growing, the lettuces, some three types are nearly ready to pick and come again. Have started thinning out the other various vegetables as far too many in them according to the book/blog on square foot gardening. Now I am worried my little seedling s will survive they look so small by themselves (pak choi, cabbages, beetroot, spinach)I have gone into overflow pots and have given some away to family and friends in pots – just the lettuce at the moment. I stil have aubergines to go out, and celery and corn, they are in my plastic greenhouse at the moment getting a wee bit bigger and until may is out, oh and keeping the tomatoes company.
So glad of the late light nights now, so I can water the plot and my pots and rest of the garden,its my wind down to the day, and beats the tv!
The fruit bushes (red/black currents, blueberries and stawberries) are looking promising, all growing and flowering. Have nets a ready.
I have snail/slug pellets organic all around, but not on the patch, it seems a bit much at the moment to spend out on nema… the biological one, well I might as well go to tesco with cost of them. I must admit I have also resorted to slinging the snails over my next door neighbours garden which is one lawn and and not gardened/looked after much as rented, quite a waste, but then good for snails as far as I can see, even if they do make a slow crawl back. I still have a bag of soot to try out against further attack, but holding back due to expected mess it will make.
Looking forward to making green salads soon
