Thanks !
Keep us posted about the watercress-I haven't seen it in the nurseries yet but I'll buy the plant when I do.
I'm interested to see what happens when you try the seed.

You should try them sliced length wise, brushed with Italian dressing and grilled on the Barbie!!! YUMMMMMMM!

That sounds like an awesome garden you're gonna have Mark...
*Where do you get your plants from, catalogs', seeds, etc?*

And did we see a picture of your green house??
I'm thinkin' we did.. but I'm thinkin' I can't be sure???

Fantastic selection of seeds. I too am looking forward to many pictures. some of the seedlings in the greenhouse and some of the garden when it is planted.

Congrats on getting a jump start on spring.

Have you planted all your list? It sounds a lovely exciting collection. How big is your garden Mark? I think you should post some pics for us all to see. I shall start my seeds begining of March...But I feel tempted now to start earlier.

Weezie ive tried them a few times, stuffed with mince n onions, not for me though!
i only have 1 shot of the greenhouse, dont think i posted it because the toms didnt look good shocked
[Linked Image]
i grow them all from seed.

TK i would like to do the pics but i keep forgetting to do it, i will try a bit harder this year though wink

Glenda im trying hard to hold back on sowing the seed, most wont be started till early march, last year we had all the bad weather in march!
none of that lot are going in the garden, there going over the allotment, i think my plot is 98 square metres, less the shed, second greenhouse, and compost bins.

so something like 27 by 30 feet? My metric is useless sorry. That's not a bad bit of garden. Far larger than I had last year even after you put a small shed and green house on it. I think anyway. I'm trying to get my imagination to fill in the gaps. lol.

Good luck with all your seeds. I know waiting is hard but it saves on some disappointments if you wait until the correct time I've found.

I wouldn't eat it that way either..
ewwwwwww...
*well, I am not fan of mince or cooked onions*
~~>but try it my way, you just never know..
~~~~>I never used to eat that either *zucchini*
but one day when I was at work at a restaurant,
and there was this awesome smell coming from the kitchen.. and I was like, what is that smell?? cool and it was zucchini on the grill with Italian dressing..... and I went ewwwwwww
that smell's so good but I'm nottt gonna try it...
Well, long story short, it was excellant, and I've been eating it ever since...
(make sure you caramalize it a bit with the grill marks', that makes it sweeter..

And your greenhouse house is verrrrrrrrrry nice thumbup clp

No deb, waiting till it warms up a bit!
then i can start them off in trays that hold water.
want to keep them over the allotment, because if i keep them at home im sure a mix of water n compost in a tray would be a magnet to my little one lala
have you got yours?

Extra garden,,,
roughly its a place where theres lots of plots for people to grow things on.
on mine theres 46 plots.
there mainly run by the local council, and are rented on a anual basis, good place to escape for a while wink

Community Gardens' over here are
more like one specific project and
everyone pitches in to get the job done...

Over there, their plots are seperate gardens,
but a bunch together in one spot...
