Yes, we are still here!

Ok, so it has been a very long time since we last posted any sort of update. A looooooooongg time indeed! Sorry! But it has been autumn, then winter, and a very slow start to spring. So really nothing to report for the last few months. Until now. And even this isn’t going to be that exciting, but at least it’s a start, so bear with us and try to appreciate it if you can!

Today I finally managed to get around to re-potting all of the seedlings that have been slowing popping up in the propagation trays on the kitchen table for the last few weeks. I’m not sure how they’ve managed to survive the prodding and poking of the kids, but they did. Which is good. Or will be when they start producing produce.

Speaking of prodding, I do like the propagation trays we’ve got. As well as being self watering through the germination phase they’re great at re-potting time as with a simple prod from the bottom they pop up ready to be transferred to their next home. Bliss! Much better than trying to wrestle them out without pulling leaves off.


Somehow this year I’ve managed to get a much better balance between the seeds sprouted and those that end up getting re-potted. With hopefully just enough spares to keep the workmates happy during the ad hoc seedling exchange meeting sometime this week.

    If you have too many you could always flick a few this way… Jichan did a great job of clearing out the waist-high weeds in the tunnel house the other day so it is ready for planting!

    Good to see you back on line. You don’t want some red cabbage seedlings do you? No matter how small the pinch of seeds, I always end up with masses.
