I am really noticing the change in daylight hours this last week. Que the panic moment where Spring is upon us and I don’t feel ready. In anticipation of this, we’re getting a nice, early starting with the seed sowing again this year. Inevitably there will be some losses but it has served me well for the last 2 years since we started on this journey.
We have now sown most varieties of tomatoes, peppers and chillis, aubergine, leeks, peas, lettuce and cucumbers. The peas went into guttering and have been placed in the greenhouse, for when they are ready to plant out, maybe April time. They will just slide straight into a trench from the guttering, suffering little disturbance and making life easier for me.
Unfortunately, the fox has paid us another visit. The 3rd now. We have Vorwerk chickens that free range completely, meaning they sleep where they want to. Inevitably that meant they were easy pickings and 4 of the 6 went last night. The 2 hens that remain are now in with the other chickens and locked away on a night.
