Still wild and wet weather. My indoor garden is romping away. Well, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the broad beans. The Aquadulce Claudia variety shot up in no time. And all of the Ã¢â‚¬Ëœpinching out the growing tipÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ actually involves chopping madly back. I have potted them all on into cut down plastic water bottles and hope that their growth will be checked a bit.Ã‚Â If they go outdoors IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to have to find a way to support them properly.Ã‚Â The Sutton variety were slower to germinate and are bushier. I definitely will choose Suttons next time if I insist on germinating so early in the year.
The onions are ready to go out, and most of the garlic sets as well. Lots of roots appearing through the bottom and sides of the jiffys. Most encouraging.Ã‚Â And my package of Sarah Raven goodies arrived today.
