sweet peas planted
The potatoes are starting to come through, so I earthed them up.
Planted some fennel plants that I did for the plant scheme. Because fennel apparently doesn't like root disturbance (which we hadn't realised when we bought the seeds), I grew them in paper pots, the theory being that the whole thing could be sold and planted without upsetting the roots. But for some reason they were looking very sad in the greenhouse, very dry and quite small, and didn't seem as if they were getting watered along with everything else. They wouldn't sell, nobody in their right mind would buy them, so I put them out of their misery and planted them. Kill or cure.
Re-sowed turnip seeds as something seems to have eaten the ones I took a photo of the other day.
