Strange seeds

Good days allotmenteering done today. The beginnings of the mammoth seed sowing season began with the sowing of some Brassicas in the form of Brussels Sprouts. And what bizarre blue seeds they were!

The variety is ‘Cronus’ from the Unwin Grosure range, which I wonder if maybe counts for their odd appearance? Possibly coated in some kind of treatment maybe? Anyhow, I picked this variety as they are mooted as a good variety for a Christmas harvest. All part of my plan for chrimbo vegetables to come from plot to plate.

Other sowing’s made today included, sweet peas scrumped from Capel Manor (shhh) and an early start on some nasturtiums for companion planting with the broad bean seedlings we transplanted from the coldframe into the plot yesterday.

For me it’s all about the simple things in life. Pottering around my allotment, growing things indoors and out, baking a good cake, being outside, pretty things, vintage finds and a good pot of tea. It’s all the small things that make me tick, noticing the beauty in everyday things. Although this blog initially was intended to be a blog about all these things its evolved into being basically a blog about our allotment. Our adventures, highs and lows, wins and loses. So join me & Mr Wilson as we learn from our mistakes and successes down plot 18a.
