Hi Kimmy,thats what gardening and growing veg is all about ( trial and error ) takeing chances,I sowed carrots today ( st valery ) never used that variety before usually early nantes here's hopeing they pull through.Was messing about in the garden today clearing bits and peices moved a peice of wood,Low and be hold a baby ladybird creamish in colour which looked like red speckles looks like a good sign for a weather change,or is it,Weather today was nice same as yours going by your pics.

I love sweetpeas! They're one of my favourite flowers, reminds me of my grandad :) Hopefully they'll do ok. Our neighbours scrapped frost off their car this morning, here in Bedfordshire. Misha looks so cute too!

I planted out my sweet peas, as well. Not marigolds, though.

We'll have to keep our fingers crossed now, won't we!

Clear nights usually lead to low temperatures so you'll have to be careful now. I haven't sewn anything yet lol.
Misha is tired out :o)

G.W site says "this week plant out seedlings of sweet peas sown last autumn". I will plant a few of mine tomorrow and see what happens. Fingers crossed for yours Kimmy.
