After Tuesday’s indecision as to what to sow, today (despite the wind and rain) I spent some time in the greenhouse sowing my tomatoes which are now on top of the cupboards in the kitchen (a warm place). My final set was:
Ailsa Craig, Bloody Butcher, Blue Ambrosia, Brad’s Atomic, Brown Berry, Crimson Crush (Cloudy Days), Dancing with Smurfs, Darby Striped, Father Frost, Gardener’s Delight, Garden Pearl, Green Grapes, Ildi, Kibit’s Ukrainian, Kumato, Lemon Tree, Marizol Gold, Maskotka, Mortgage Lifter, Mountain Magic, Oleron Yellow, Principe Borghese, Red Robin, Rosella, Sandpoint, Summer Cider, Tiny Tim, Tumbling Tom Red, Urban’s Delight.
Which is more than I planned but there are some old seeds in amongst them so there’s a chance that they won’t germinate. I’ve also tried to do a mix of indoor and outdoor tomatoes, determinate and indeterminate so that despite less space indoors I will have a selection giving a mix of colours and sizes by putting more outside than I would normally do..
I also sowed some more Broadbeans, the overwintering lot having been destroyed when the polytunnel cover split and waved about in the wind.
