I have been helping my father-in-law for the past few years, with his allotment, but I must stress I do not write down and compare anything I have grown in the past. I have now been able to aquire an allotment of my own and so I thought it fun to start a diary and then be able to look back and maybe compare my good, bad and sad efforts.
I hope you join in and read my diary and maybe add a comment or 2, to maybe help me on my way.
I have cleaned and cleared out my greenhouse all ready for this years growing season. So wish me luck.

I`m going to pop these in to the greenhouse until, they start stooting and then take it from there, but will keep you informed, each step of the way. Together i`ve potted up 32, so I will see how I go with these

1.Then filled to about just over half inch below the top of the tray, with compost and spaced the seeds evenly in the compost. Then covered the seeds with more compost and sparingly watered the whole trays. I didn`t want to soak the seeds, as the compost was already moist. Then the tray with the 6 seeds went into the heated propagator and the tray with the 3 seeds onto the kitchen window sil.
