Growing Things Update

Everything is growing away well, although it would be nice if it stayed a bit warmer at night so I could put out some of the more tender things filling up my window sills.

Did you sow some carrots? Mine are just getting their second set of leaves and looking more like carroty. These are from BBC Dig In:

Dig In carrots

They are currently residing in my lovely new greenhouse/cloche/cat and rabbit defence system:

Along with leeks, lettuce, chard, radish, beetroot, spring onions, celery, and a couple of tomatoes that out grew the window sill. It’s surprising what you can grow just in tubs and pots.

Whilst most of these things are for me to eat, there will be loads of trimmings for the bunnies too. They will love things like this basil (once it gets a bit bigger):

Inside, my window sills are full of things that don’t like frost like tomatoes, sweet peppers, cucumbers, squash, melon, pepino and cape gooseberry. These pretty little flowers are sweet peppers:

See that green bit it the centre of the flower? That’s the start of a pepper. In a few days the petals will drop away leaving a tiny green pepper behind.

Sorry no bunny pics this time. They are just off camera licking their lips.

    Wow. Smart thinking with the bunny/kitty protector apparatus. I am jealous of your indoor gardening skills, but I don’t know if my buns can be trusted, both wiht big tubs of dirt for digging in, and the young and vulnerable delicious sprouts. I admire your creativeness!

    Looking good Tam 🙂

    I love the idea of a Rabbit Defense System – an RDS!

    My seeds are starting to peep out now, but Humphrey’s not so fussed, he is just loving the apple blossom at the moment!
