Happy new year to you all, I hope this year hits you with plenty potatoes, tons of tomatos and buckets of beetroots.
Yesterday I sowed my first seeds of the year, some basil for the window ledge. It has given me the bug so tomorrow I'm going to make a start on some early tomatoes, chilli and spring onion, I love this time of year :)
I made some cranberry sauce at the beginning of the week with some cranberries that my Stepdaughter brought me when she visited from Ireland after Christmas. When I was washing the berries, I remembered a post on the grapevine talking about saving cranberry seeds from the fruit. So I couldn't resist giving it a go and threw a few berries into a jar.
I strained out the fruit today and was left with a small bundle of seeds
They are drying out on a plate and I'll pop them into the fridge for a few weeks for stratification.
The forecast for Wednesday and Thursday looks good, dry but cold so hopefully we'll get to the plot and start clearing out the greenhouse.
