I like Temes idea for keeping the seasons stuff in one place so i'm starting my own thread for the upcoming growing  year,

Love your vids Tom. Is the greenhouse that you sowed your seeds in heated? I always start mine off on the windowsill but I never have enough room.

thanks VG, no its not heated but I have a parrafin heater for frosty nights, its only one of those cheap ones it gives off about the same heat as a candle, I have two Aladdin parrafin heaters too, they give off good heat but burn a gallon a day so the cost would't justify a few plants,

Notice the lovely sunshine in last year's vid? Not had much of that recently - I haven't done anything for days the weather has been too stormy. Hoping to do a good few hours today - rain set to kick in early evening.

Those mystery plants at 1.34 mins look like Coriander to me, and those pots at 1.54 mins with the green leaves that look like lily pads are Nasturtiums.

Ace vid, my sunflowers are a little leggy, but they will come right before long.  The sweet peas I am going to pot up into individual pots with a cane in I think - they have germinated and are growing better than anything else.  My tomatoes are growing slow, but then so are most things - I will give them a feed in the next few days - looking for an organic feed - thinking of making some nettle feed.

May in the garden and the Nasturtiums are failing, I may have put them outside too soon or they may have caught something, I've put them back in the greenhouse and hope for some recovery but it doest look good, Sad

You're looking a lot further ahead than I am Tom, with regards to self-sown stuff. toms garden diary for 2015 - Page 2 709307421

Frost defo got those Nasturtiums Tom - but they are still there - woman on next plot planted four Courgettes she had bought from Aldi but the frost has taken them all - it is still very early yet.

I have seen others use dried pies out of the kitchen cupboard - its ideal for getting kids involved - of course if you have forgot to pick some of those that you grow and the shells go hard you can let them dry on the plant and use them for next year - just like you do with Sweet Peas. Can't wait till my greenhouse is completely finished as I am limited for sowing space.

Leaves don't look like any peppers I have ever seen, but happy to be proven wrong. Very Happy

Looking good there Tom, mind has been left to rot after Mrs Tem was seriously ill over the last few months, so it's been left to waste unfortunately.

I think you will be able to tell what it is when whatever it is follows the flower and develops. Sometimes leaves can grow a tad different but as Tem says, the leaves don't look like Pepper leaves. You are a bit further on than me, I was later because I was still fixing my Greenhouse - everything is coming on though, although I don't have any cucumbers this year, the seedlings failed - yours are looking great as are your peas - I am going to be sowing another batch - my first sowings were part eaten by mice I think as only about half came through.

Tem - hope your missus is feeling better soon.

Those Nasturtians can be eaten - both leaf and flower. Seeds too I think......

I had many failed cucumbers too VG, out of a pack of 50 seeds i got 20 seedings, and out of those many died and only 4 became plants, they're very finicky I've found, one of the survivors did't grow at all for months then only these last few days started to grow, Can't say i'd fancy eating the Nasturtians, the bees love um though, Very Happy
