Spring lettuce

The lettuce is doing well so far. Still not sure about the carrots, but to be fair, we  had an “almost frost” a few days ago so we were quite lucky to have anything left. I wish Vegtrug would hurry up and get the greenhouse frame in stock. What a time to run out of them!

First planting

I think it’s a good idea to get a few bought in seedlings planted.  Lollo Rosso and little gem lettuce and a few carrots.  We are almost (just about) out of danger from frosts but not quite warm enough for reliable germination.

We have a couple of small greenhouses I can sow seeds in which will be ready about mid May.   I don’t expect too much from the carrots, you have to be a little rough to seperate the roots so they may not grow well, they can be sown when the temperature rises a bit.



This is some of the crop from last year.  I had great success with tomatoes, chillies and some herbs.


This year we have bought a Vegtrug and I hope we can produce a lot more salad, carrots and greens.
