We’re a bit later than I’d intended but a couple of days ago, we sowed our carrot seeds.
The bed wasn’t too weedy as I’d covered it in wood chippings over the winter. My husband spent far longer than I would have raking through the compost and breaking up the clay. Still, we will probably get better results.
The seeds we sowed were one set of easy-grow, early cropping orange carrots and one set of multi-coloured carrots that I suspect won’t grow as easily. There were about 2,500 seeds in the first packet and 200 in the second so I should think we’ll get a lot more of the “standard” carrots in any case.
I really need to sort out a couple of flowerbeds. One in particular is a weedy, grassy disgrace. I wonder whether it would be worth putting a load of lavender and herbs in there? I had meant to make it more “fancy” but anything is better than what I have at present. And oregano would be great at going to battle with the weeds.
