The tomato seedlings are coming along nicely. After the first true leaves came through, I transplanted them into individual containers filled with potting mix. They should be ready to plant out by Labour weekend at the end of the month. I've lost a few in the last few days...and finally found the culprit, a big fat juicy snail! I'm no good a squashing them, so he had a short flight over the fence instead. I've also got some lettuces and choy sum seeds starting out in seed raising mix; it may look like heaps, but once you've lost a few to slugs and snails and given a few away it should be about right.
My red onions haven't really formed bulbs this year, but I'm eating them as spring onions anyway. Our strawberry plants aren't looking the healthiest either....here's hoping a little extra fertiliser and the pea straw around them will make them happier. Ada and Kye could spend all day in the strawberry patch...so I hope we get a few!
