This was the state of play last week before we left for our weekend break.
I love, love, love Courgette, Cucumber and Squash seedlings, there's something so satisfyingly chunky about those strong leaves bursting through the compost and standing to attention. I apologised profusely to the ones I had planted upside down that had to twist themselves into position to get their leaves above their roots, I was obviously daydreaming when I popped some of them into the pots, I have replanted them the right way round now ... much to their delight.
The peas are doing really well too, this was last week.
Our tea on Tuesday included to Pea Shoot toppings just so we can say we have at last easten some homegrown food :-)
All the seedlings have come on so much more than they are seen here, but unfortunately the pictures are stuck in the camera which Lovely Hubby has to photograph the ongoing work outside, so I will have to download them later.
Spring Onion and Beetroot from last week.
Radishes, planted directly into the raised bed inside the polytunnel, again they are SO much bigger already. They are being mollycoddled as I would like a few to eat next week when I do Live Below the Line. I need to sit and plan what I will be eating and buying before I start, but Radish thinnings and our free range eggs are most definitely on the menu.
I got some more free gifts on my Kitchen Garden magazine subscription this month. It was like a lovely birthday pressie popping through the letterbox.
I'm off to try and get back my camera now, I've taken so many photos I can't remember what's on there.
I was asked again recently why I enjoy growing our own food .... I'll point to to THIS post, written three years ago.
