Despite the ongoing saga of the wormery woes, I have two success stories on the garden front, and one more of failure, just to keep my feet on the ground.
The potatoes are now pretty much chitted up, if that’s the appropriate phrase. I read today that Good Friday is the day for planting them, so I’m going to be a traditionalist and leave them until then. Not least because I need to plant them in grow bags, and I haven’t got any yet.The tomato seedlings are doing well, a few of them have just started to produce a third leaf. I guess they will need planting in individual pots soon, and hardening off in the little plastic greenhouse I now have outside.
But what happened to the onions (not shown stage left)?
I was watering them with a spray can, because they were looking a bit weedy. Unfortunately they then all died off in spectacular style. This is rather upsetting.
It’s not as if I actually need to grow onions, more my feelings of bad motherhood that I let them perish. I’m wondering what exactly I did wrong, and if it’s worth starting again?
