Bank Holiday Monday wasn't too bad a day and at long last it seems we might have seen the back of that wintry weather we've been suffering from for a week or more. Monday started dullish, with a drop of rain around lunchtime which put us off making a much needed visit to the plot but by early afternoon the sun came out and it was a nice afternoon. We made the most of the good weather sowing and transplanting crops at home. Full details are listed here.
These Little Gem lettuces were all sown on 17 March and the smaller plants were transplanting into this raised bed on 18 April. Some were left to grow on in the greenhouse and these were transplanted into this raised bed on 02 May. The cold weather has prevented the early transplants from doing any growing at all. If we're lucky though this will prolong our harvesting period.
I'm growing this pot full of Little Gems on in the greenhouse hoping that they'll provide us with an early crop before the ones in the outdoor raised bed.
