One really useful aspect of writing this blog is that I can look back and see exactly when I was doing things in the garden last year. It was the middle of March when I wrote about our very first steps at growing our own vegetables and at that stage my first tomato seedlings had started to appear. This year's went in today, and with a germination period of between 7 and 14 days I guess that means I'm right on track.
In addition to some Gardener's Delight that came free with the February issue of Gardener's World magazine, I've also tried planting some leek. I've not grown leek at all before so will see if I have any success.
It's strange just how good it feels to have made a start for the year. I'm hoping that 2011 is a year in which we really make a difference with what we manage to grow in our garden.
