Seed sowing and transplanting

Now that we are home again after a holiday in the Lake District I've started sowing more seeds. So far Black Beauty Courgette, for an early crop in the polytunnel. Purple dwarf French Beans likewise. I've also potted on Mixed Lettuce seedlings into individual modules, transplanted earlier Lettuce seedlings, along with self-sown Nasturtium and Mizuna into a bed in the poly-tunnel.

I still have Beetroot, Spring Onions, Kale and Kohlrabi in modules, growing on a bit before I plant them in the poly-tunnel.

This year I plan to make the most of these self-sown greens, transplanting them to where they can grow vigorously to be picked for hen fodder.
