Look forward to some photos Stikkibeek
Raised garden is now up and cloche hoops and plastic tunnel also installed. Now I only need to find some good vegetable plants to put in. Have some under way in the propagating house but they will be a while before they are ready to plant out and I'm impatient to get going. We were very lucky to get a large heap of peat loam for the greenhouses and raised garden. I will have to raise the PH a bit, as the test meter showed the soil as too high on the alkaline gradient. Seems I might have to charge the camera battery.
The cauliflower plants I planted in the propagating green house have doubled in size already. I do like indoor grown cauliflower as they stay clean and white and seem to be a very much nicer flavour as they grow more quickly. In the seed trays I have nasturtiums and cornflowers coming up. They will be planted out in the garden a little later. There are also some precious heritage tomato plants up, but so far only the Golden Queen. I managed to locate some Singapore surprise a few days ago, which were in a sealed container with a silicon moisture bag. I do not know if they are still viable as they are a few seasons old, but I have put them into the seed trays in the hope some will germinate. Still haven't tracked down the seed I so carefully packed! Grrr.
Never thought about growing cauliflower inside before,good idea,i should grow some in pots then plant them about June when the tomatoes come out
Depends how old,ive heard of tomato seed lasting 15 years

Bought a couple of Roma plants last weekend, and have my first tomatoes in the ground now. Still have to sort out the irrigation, but for the moment, the watering can will do. Pricked out a Golden queen seedling that was doing well and have transplanted it into a pot of its own.
Also need overhead wires to tie off to. Hopefully they will be up soon so I don't get big feet trampling the beds when the tomatoes are ready to tie.
Yumm a Golden queen,from your own tree??
Tomato plant Richard! It is a large indeterminate yellow tomato, similar to a beefsteak.

Ha! Blueberry, I have got as far as charging the camera batteries, but it's pouring with rain at present and pitch dark, so it won't be tonight! Patience. Good things come to those who wait!
Let me guess,lettuce?
