'How long will I have to look at these plants on my window sill?'
This was the question asked yesterday by one of the boys, about his bedroom window sill, where I (or should I say 'we') have some seeds sown indoors in a heated propagator, which has been very successful, and they have since had the heat turned off and the lid removed.
Of course the next step would have been to pot them on and transfer them to the greenhouse, but with the weather the way it has been, I have held off on this process,
A) because with the cooler weather the plants would have had a set back &
B) because the space is limited in the greenhouse as the plants in there should have been hardened off to put outside or into cloches.
Well, with the change to warmer weather, the gardening wheel will begin to turn again.
Plants from the greenhouse will be hardened up to go outdoors, plants from the house will be transferred to the greenhouse and more seeds will be sown on the window sill.
(Note to self: don't be to hard on yourself in 2012 for only getting to sow your tomato seed in March; earlier sown plants have been 'checked' by the turn in the weather over the past few weeks)
As for the window sill? Well it'll be a little time yet before it's cleared!
Have a great weekend gardening
