Today I put out the first lot of extra plants for sale. These are the ones that have been doing their thing in No. 2 greenhouse - which is the one I use for hardening-off and acclimatising. Especially when considering the fact that this time as week ago, we had two nights of frosts?! Today it got up to 24 degrees and the aroma of sun-tan lotion was in the air.
ANYWAY, I need to clear No.2 GH as much as possible because it's time to sort the tomatoes out, and try and get a handle on the Hot Peppers (chilli) and Marconi Sweet Peppers. The thing is, I'm not terribly confident that what I have labelled up as these peppers, are actually the real thing! This is because they look like tomato plants - and a few even smell like toms BUT I'm not sure!! To be honest , it wouldn't be unheard of for the odd pot to have ended up in the wrong tray, but it is somewhat irritating. And of course, I can only take responsibility for this myself. Suffice to say, there are a number of 'random' plants-in-pots and it is not beyond the realm of possibility that I am cultivating a lot of weeds too!
By the way, all the proceeds from my 50p pots are raising funds for the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC). The team that attended my sister Kate, were incredible.
