Wow, scorchio here in Norwich this week! I had yesterday off work - my big news is that I've just gone down to working 4 days a week, so will have more time for fun stuff like allotmenting (and chores and errands, not such fun). I'll usually have Wednesdays off but can change it if I need to.
My seeds are coming along quite well, the only casualties have been a few basils which look like they've succumbed to damping off (with a pinch of neglect) but as they were old packs of seeds I had sown quite thickly as I wasn't expecting a great germination. Plus the early basils I sowed last year didn't germinate at all if remember rightly, so I wasn't holding out much for them. I like the cute tiny new leaves.
Most of these photos are from the weekend, so a few days have passed since:
Basil - green and purple - There's a flopped one at the front where you can just see its thin shrivelled stem, likely from 'damping off'
My main challenge with most of my seedlings now is to make sure they either don't frazzle in the heat in the lean-to and that I don't over water them... hmmm, it could go either way! I do tend to be a bit haphazard and not check on things enough. We'll see what happens in the next few weeks!
