Looks like a lovely morning – ideal allotment …

however I shall be giving it a miss today as I have more pressing things to do at the moment – like painting our newly refurbished bathroom for instance!

I have been busy on the seeds and sowing front though. My pepper, chilli and tomato seedlings are doing very nicely. I have a couple of varieties of peppers and a couple of varieties of chilli, ”cayenne” & “jalapeño”. Neither of them is too stupidly hot as I like the taste of a fresh chilli rather than the burn.

I have seedlings for 7 different varieties of Tomato including the “estamino” rootstock for my grafting experiment. Venerable varieties like “gardener’s delight”,“marmande” and “tigeralla” are represented as well as some more recent favourites like “sungold”.
