Kits' Kitchen Garden

I started on the seeds today. I have sown courgette and mange tout - my runaway winners last year! - and then I stopped as I don't have enough space on the utility window sill to add any more. I have carrot and parsnip ready and waiting for when I can put the cold frame back out.

I thought I would keep this as a diary of how it all goes.

Sounds good, Kits. I've put in a few tomatoes and some salad leaves and they are on the spare bedroom windowsill, (which is a nice wide one into a bay) and the salad bits have sprouted already and I only put them in on Friday!

Shall look forward to reading the diary as everything progresses.

Ah, Lyn! You have given me an idea. I can use the windowsill in the dressing room as it faces exactly the same way as the utility!

My window sills in the lounge and kitchen are full, as are the porch! I am hoping the 2 coldframes and greenhouse will help!

It does not matter how much space you have got. I still find there is never enough.

Lots of interest going on there Kits.

Love to see that it all progresses for you over the coming months.

The onions and garlic are in the raised bed since the Autumn. I am hoping for an early harvest. I also planted white radish, salad, spinach, beetroot and black Tuscan kale. The tomatos , cucumbers, chillies and Aubergine are still on the window sill. I am hoping they can go into their tubs in May. I have also bought (I know I'm cheating) a Welsh onion that sits in a large pot. The potatoes are in their grow bags for a week now. The rocket , cut back in Autumn, has over wintered nicely and we are harvesting it already.

I have onions in a container on the patio and some herbs: lemon thyme, sage, and catnip.
