    Started the first of the new seasons seeds off in the propagator. Managed to empty one of the compost heaps out and get it on one of the beds ready to spread but the ground is very wet indeed.

    Hey BB I'm not surprised your ground is still wet after all that rain you guys have been having!!!

    Hope it all dries out pretty quickly for you and you have a good veggie season lol

    Yes the ground would still be very soggy, at the moment, after all that rain you had, BigBilly. Your propagators & greenhouses are worth their weight in gold.

    Good to see, BigBilly. So pleased your veggie garden wasn't too badly damaged by all the rain. Here's hoping you will have an excellent growing season to come. 

    Thanks for posting these pics.  :D

    Had a week of really good dry weather so the veggie garden is all ready for sowing. Some already  in, four rows of early potatoes , four double rows of broad beans and one row of sugar snap peas in the garden. Lettuce plants,lettuce seeds,carrot seeds,spring onion seeds and radish seeds all in the large plastic containers.  Tomatoes, courgettes, peppers, brassicas and flower seeds growing on in the greenhouse.
    Great to be started after all the rain.

    Excellent news, BigBilly. It all sounds so good & I'll bet you are so pleased to have your veggie garden started. What a wide variety of produce it is too. 

    Hopefully spring is well underway for you now. :D

    Great idea, BigBilly. It would be able to be done all year round, too, wouldn't it? Looks good.  :D

    Yes Joy could be done all the year but we grow it indoors while we have the Rayburn alight during the winter months. ( still on at the moment )

    Don't blame you for still having it running, BigBilly, as the weather still probably needs to get a bit warmer yet before you turn it off for the summer.  :lol3:  Your windowsills are a good width, too, for holding such containers. Ours are too narrow to be anything but dust catchers.

    :hi: BigBilly, Yummm your garden makes me want to eat. Everything looks so good.  Everything right out of the garden is so much better then from the fruit and veggie stands.  Thanks so much for the pictures,  looking forward to more.

    My, my, BigBilly, your veggie garden is already a wonderful sight.  :bravo:  Everything is flourishing & looking good. You have made your soil a plant's paradise. Here we would say it's good enough to grow babies.  :lol3:

    Sorry for not being around much, but busy times with visitors and crops ready for harvest.

    Some of the good crop of broad beans we have this year.
