In an attempt to have ‘something’ growing right now I sowed some purple sprouting broccoli seeds around a month ago. I didn’t think they would grow as there’s not much light to be had in our small courtyard garden. But I’ve been proved wrong. They’re going great guns and this one has even got to the two leaf stage. I’m not a hundred percent sure when they should go in the ground but I might fashion a cloche from a water bottle just in case the weather is too much for the little mites. Dragged Ryan to the garden centre today to buy fresh potting compost and Potash for the fruit bushes. I plan to pot up some broadbeans (Longpods) at the weekend to replace the batch of no-shows from the Autumn sowing.
Umm…while searching for Broccoli-related items online I found Broccoli Town which seems to be some kind of town where they grow a lot (and I mean a lot) of Broccoli. Apparently all the Broccoli is passed through a metal detector for our ‘safety’. I don’t pretend what’s going on here.
