Seedlings!

About a week after planting the seeds we have little seedlings appearing :-) All the cucumber seeds have sprouted as well as a couple of the tomato plants. So far no sign of life from the eggplant or cherry tomato plant seeds.

Apparently its a bit too cold to plant the seedlings yet and warming the soil a bit can also help. So I’ve put down some black plastic where we’re planning on planting the seedlings when they’re ready. I dug some organic fertiliser into the ground and we picked up some pea straw for mulch so are already once the seedlings have matured enough to go outside.
