Successional Sowing: A Date In The Diary
So this is typically what we do when it comes to sowing seeds:
A massive bout of enthusiasm in March and April.
Nurture and pot on through May.
Plant out beginning of June.
Stand back, admire our work and feel smug.
Do no further sowing and then wonder why there are thirty lettuces to eat in one week and no more for the rest of the season.
Reading another blog last week lamenting the loss of some salad crops it occurred to me that perhaps we are not alone in this cycle of events.
So in a bid to be a bit more organised I am highlighting Mondays in my diary as ‘successional sowing day’.
Let me know in the comments what you are planning to sow this month.
