New Year, New Start

Even in this early part of January I am encouraged by the new season and the beauty of the world around us. I have just bought this little book which is a real treat.

I don’t really need encouraging to start sowing seeds but this little book has encouraged me. I’ve spent the whole of Christmas and New Year with a nasty cough and cold and this little book has helped a lot. Do you know you can start sowing seeds in a unheated greenhouse or cold frame now! 🙂 I’ve started sorting my seeds and have taken advise from my little book.

I’ve never done well with Sweet Peas, but there’s always a first time. I needed long pots but not having enough toilet roll tubes I decided to make some. You can get tutorials on line.

I had two half started packets so I used them all up. Let’s see what happens

I’ve laid a piece of bubble wrap over them as a bit of insulation in case there’s a nasty frost.
