In fact, I was so busy today I didn't get a chance to take many photos - just this cinnabar moth. They are so pretty and their caterpillars don't eat veggies so are welcome on the plot.
- Coriander - direct into the ground, near the carrots.
- Big Smile sun flowers - big flower, short stem. These looked good in pots last year. They're in small pots in the greenhouse at the moment.
- Calendula Sherbet Fizz - sowed them into modules for transplanting all over the place.
- Mantanghong Chinese Radish - forgot we had these exciting things. I sowed direct into the ground but covered with mesh to offer some protection (though pollen beetles normally cause the most damage to these types of crop).
Plot 3 is still turning out a lot of weed and roots but Jamie dug a good area where we should be able to plant a pumpkin quite soon. We have a few coming on nicely in the greenhouse.
Our chilli, bell pepper and tomato plants are surviving at home for the timebeing. Hopefully in June we'll take them up to their final home in the greenhouse..
Oh! And, all 12 florence fennel were still standing - just one dead slug!
