Seed sowing timetable 2009

I have  a timetable for myself so that I remember what has to be done and when it needs doing.  Over the years of working in our vegetable plot I have on too many occasions forgotten something so I am hoping this will help to jog my poor memory.

We have a selection of old and trusty and also new and exciting (well, they are to us). I haven’t included the  potatoes or shallots or other vegetables that we aren’t going to grow from seed but they will find a way in on a different timetable. Nothing is set in stone and I am hoping to be able to show how simple it can be to grow your own and then put them in the pot. It does  make an  lot of difference when you can actually taste the fruits of your labour.  I love it! We are only ‘potterers’ and are continually learning so we are likely to make mistakes but that is part of the joy when something does go to plan. I have so far set up the small ‘incubator’ for starting off the the January sowing. I  also read that Lemon grass can grow just by letting it root in water, so I have had a go and will let you know how that goes.
