Early planting in the poly tunnel!

This year we are starting to plant earlier in the poly tunnel, it's the first week in February and yesterday we planted “Salad Leaf Mix (Mesclun Mis) and “The Californian Salad Mix Baby Leaf Salad”, in guttering hanging up in the poly tunnel.

We have early early potatoes chitting and  we are  planning to plant them down one side of the poly tunnel. The idea being that they will be ready and picked by the time we plant tomato's in their place later on this year!

Other seeds we are planning to plant  next week are an early carrot “Giant Red Carrot”, “ Oskar” dwarf early peas and “Hon Tsai Tai” purple sprouting greens.

All this inspiration has come form a book called “Grow your own Vegetables” by Joy Larkcom and seed companies like “The Real Seed Catalogue” and Seedaholic” web sites.
