Talking to plants..

They say that talking to your plants can help, so maybe all my impatient sighing about the slow progress of my chilli seeds has had an effect..

That looks much better than last week, so I’m a bit happier now (still impatient though…) The tomatoes seedlings are coming along nicely too, a couple have wilted and given up the fight but most of them are still going strong.

So that made me turn my attention to the sweet peas sown in my new deep root trainer. I did two batches but cleverly managed to mix up which variety went in which half – note to self – REMEMBER TO LABEL STUFF! So one half is doing very well, albeit going a bit leggy and the
other half not looking quite so healthy but getting there. I gingerly pinched out the leggy half, I always worry that I’m going to kill everything off doing ‘technical’ stuff like this but I’m gradually getting braver.

So far, so good. I’m resisting sowing anything else just yet, but I think I will sort out all my seed packets this weekend and do a bit more planning – can’t wait to get out in the garden now,
I really want to be more organised than I managed to be last year when all the rain meant I didn’t get round to doing much at all until April so everything was really late.

Some lovely colours popping up in my pots and window boxes outside the back door too:
