cleaned out the rest of the poly tunnel today, added minure to the beds and planted my first seeds of the season.
Broad beans........ It said to plant in Jan so hopefully they will be OK.
I also built my self a propigation box and planted toms, bell peppers and chillies that will be on the window sills in the house for a few weeks.
i know I might be a bit ahead of my self planting but it's only my second year growing anything and I just couldn't wait any longer.
I feel like a kid waiting for christmas Smile

I was not going to add any cozz i know your suppose to do it well before your planting but a buddy I was talkting to told me to add a small bit as most beds won't get planted in for for another month or so.
the tunnel is 30x16 and I only put in 100lt into it so hopefully I will be ok.
The place I put the beans into was a bed I put in at the end of last season so nothing much was grown in it so i didn't bother putting any manure in there.

As we're near neighbours (more or less) I don't pay much attention to this mania for 'well rotted' manure.

I prepare my site by putting newspaper and manure in a trench before backfilling with the soil. I then sprinkle the row with lime granules - all bean types like lime, it seems - and plant the bean seeds which are finally covered with more soil.

It works for me.
