All systems go!

It's been a busy few days and I'm really making the most of the good weather and lighter evenings!

My greenhouse arrived yesterday and was up and ready to use within 20 minutes (with a little help from my Dad!). I moved all the seed trays from the patio into the greenhouse yesterday evening and by this morning a couple of the cabbages were poking through.

I've just had another look (approx 10 hours later) and some of the Purple sprouting and lettuces are poking through as well.

Last night I planted some parsnips, potatoes and potted some Broad Beans that were given to me by my friend Lyn (thanks Lyn!!!).

The greenhouse isn't huge and I'm struggling to fit everything in but I'm getting a bit addicted to sowing seeds and tonight I've planted more lettuces, cucumbers, cauliflowers, more potatoes and sweet peppers.... oops!

Tomorrow is Good Friday so a day off! The plan is to get up to the allotment and actually start getting the ground ready for when all the seeds are ready to move. I have carrots, courgettes and tomatoes left to sow now.

Definitely getting somewhere now and I'm excited to be seeing results after only 9 days!
