I have also sown four different variety of chilli seeds and they are just about peeping through the soil, hopefully they will be up before the weekend. I have them growing on a south facing very warm windowsill which they seem to like.
I also sowed some tomato seeds yesterday and some long banana peppers which are expensive in the supermarkets at the moment.
I worked on the allotment for four hours last week, no photo's as I forgot to take the camera ! but lot's got done and it is looking good. Today was a brilliant day weather wise, so I spent it gardening. There was a lot to chop back especially the Ivy growing on the fence, it's kind of taken over and needed to be pruned hard.
I left it over winter for the birds as it had lot's of berries.
There were lot's of ladybirds around, so I was careful not to disturb them. I did feel very guilty about disturbing a hedgehog though ! I had started a compost heap in the corner of a large bed last year and I decided to turn it over today and accidentally dug up a hedgehog. It was alive as I saw it moving as I almost threw it in the bin !! I hope I did the right thing by putting it back under the soil ? I know nothing about hedgehogs, so I really hope it is OK.
That's about all the news, but I'm glad I have got into the swing of things now and hopefully as the soil warms up I can get more direct sowing done on the plot. I have been keeping up with all your blogs, and I felt it was time I got a start on the allotment and sowing seeds. Reading other blogs give me inspiration and make me feel lazy for lagging behind.
