Last night I finally got round to doing something that I have wanted to do for a week or so now; I have planted out a second batch of Lettuce.
The lettuce that is currently growing is just so tasty I am sure I will run out of the two planters that I have currently got.
I have used one of the planters I got from freecycle, filled it partially with the tonne of soil I bought for the potatoes (more on those later) and then topped off with potting compost.
I then made seven little holes with the best manual dibber in the business - my index finger.
Into each of these holes I dropped 1 or 2 seeds from the pack.
Seeds safely covered with compost, I have also put these little plastic covers to stop any birds from stealing the seedlings; lesson learned from my carrot experience.
Fingers crossed I have another really good harvest from this second planting. You can see the other lettuce in the background of the last picture above.
Around the rest of the garden, I have a taken a few pictures of various parts of the garden for progress reports.
No extra photos of tomatoes for you this week, but I do have TWO small tomatoes growing, and loads more flowers ready to turn into them.
Anyway, I'll be back again soon with another installment.
