Well, that was a busy month indeed. The North of Ireland had the biggest concentration on snow falling over a few days since 1963! It has been bitterly cold though and felt just like winter, so I have been scurrying around my garden this past few weeks trying to protect my early Spring growth whilst building various housings to help keep the cold snap away. My greenhouse got totally obliterated in severe winds that we had for a few days so that was also the end of an era for that old thing – I already have a nice shiny replacement though :)
So amidst all of that you would think that growing was at a minimum, well you would be wrong! As you can see my seedlings are flourishing under the protection of a nice warm house and sunny windowsill. Although we had the crazy weather, most days were bright and sunny too, weird eh?
Well almost all of my seeds have sprung to life with an exception of a few. My Apache’s didn’t do too well but apart from that I’m very happy on the progress as a whole. They are all around 1-2 inches in height and have their second leaves with some onto their third set. I’m really giving them a good amount of time to bed in to these little cells so that they are good and strong when I plant them out to the next stage.
I am going to leave these another week and then plant them out to medium size seed trays where they are sure to really start looking like proper little chilli plants. I can’t wait!!!!
I’d love you hear how any of you are doing so far this Spring. What are you growing?
