Garden Commodore photographed this afternoon. Nice to see them back again.
My garden experiment. In an attempt to do away with seed trays I am having a go at planting in old toilet rolls. Add a little potting mix, sow the seed, gently pressing it into potting mix and cover lightly. Bio-degradable so there’s no need to remove seedling to transplant. Simply wait ’til it sprouts … like so, make a hole in the soil and pop it in.
This is a Butternut Squash and because it is a ‘sprawler I planted in one of the compost bins that is currently waiting to break down.
Around the time the compost is ‘done’ my squash should be ready to harvest.
I’m also using this method to start tomatoes and several have also germinated this week.
It’s going to be interesting to see the results.
