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.
