More planting

Weather was very mild this weekend, so a few things achieved in the tunnel and outside. I had planted broad beans inside, these were a good dive, so I put them in one of the new tunnel beds. It will be interesting to see if slugs demolish them. Most are quite tall, so they may be safe enough, I put eggshells round the smaller ones. I also planted some more broad bean seeds in between them, in case of failure.

Seeds planted:
Indoors - Aubergine and chilli. Also sweet peas and broad beans.
I put some turnips and corn salad in the tunnel, it's pretty warm in there, and a lot brighter then the windowsill.

2 large pots with potatoes too, these were seed potatoes that started sprouting back in oct, they have been on a window sill since. They'll need fleece if it shows signs of freezing.

Great to have this much activity this early, taking some chances here too, but all in the name of learning....
