Hi all,

I've found this site really usefull so far, have just put my name down for a private allotment so hope to get lots of use out of it in the next year. Hoping to grow onions, spring onions, leeks, peas, beans, cabbage, brocoli, cauliflower, small few carrots, and maybe some sweetcorn and salad vegetables. Have 4 cherry tomatoe plants doing well indoors at home (a little too well, first flowers are there already) and hopefully will harden off to move out onto the balcony next month.

looking forward to chattin'

Thanks all for the welcomes,

Hi barremic,

I bought them as plugs so got a bit ahead but I don't think your too late, I've grown them from seed in previous years and only sowed them in March/April and they thrived, as long as we get a good summer this year! heres hoping Year before last I had them started early indoors and hardened them off in the beginning of april and the wind in may tore them to shreds, so Crying or Very sad can be too early aswell if your putting them outside.

Considering the winds we had last night, i'd bet anything that wasnt tied down would be thorn to shreds.

I do usually try to grow from seed, but usually get one plant from garden center just in case.

I guess part of gardening is trying to learn to be patient, as the weather can be up and down, and yet i want to just get growing.
