They're off!

Last Sunday I sowed the very first seeds of the new season and placed them under the growing light in a spare room upstairs.

Things have moved on and now the onion seeds are germinating well.
When I was taking a photo of the above seedlings, I noticed that things were also happening in the trays containing the celeriac and celery. Of the two the celeriac is slightly behind with four tiny seedlings having germinated. Although there are a few more celery seedlings they are just too teeny to photograph.
Not much to look at I know but it's a symbolic start to our 2013 gardening year.

  9. Brilliant!! I'm just waiting on my seeds coming through. It's so exciting isn't it! My monster leeks have been potted on but don't seem to be progressing too much as yet. lettuce is really looking good though now.. Roll on good weather (if we get some ;) !!

    1. It is exciting Anna, amazing that those tiny blades of grass will provide a food source. Notice here I refer just to the onions as if we have anything to eat from the celery and it's cousin I'll be amazed.

    1. The weather isn't very co-operative at the moment is it Tanya. Let's hope after a slow start we have a good summer with rain when we need it preferably during the night and some warmth and sunshine but nor too hot! Maybe if we all wish hard!
