Basil and lettuce sprouting and the chillies are starting to sprout their first true leaves, yay! I won’t log the chillies until one of them looks like a proper leaf though. No sign of the carrots or peppers yet though. The cherry toms (both bought and homegrown) are starting to recover form their severe frosting, though they’re very behind now – lesson learnt: don;t put things out too early, or at least remember to bring them in at night!

Day 7


Ocimum basilicum

Day 5

Mixed lettuce

Lactuca sativa
