Last day of winter

This afternoon I vaguely mentioned to Big Bro that if he were interested, we might have some seeds that could be planted... well, there was no stopping him!

We put in tomatoes (Irene's Tiny Toms, Yellow Pear, Black Russian and Tigerella) and three ancient squash seeds (my last remaining crookneck from a holiday in San Francisco in 1998, and two yellow scallops from Digger's).

I'm trying out home-made jiffy pot equivalents- aka folded toilet rolls, the idea being that the seedlings can be transplanted straight into the garden without their roots being disturbed. I'll report back on how they go.
