Thursday was dull and cool and although we’d been planning a trip to the plot to sow our carrots the weather put us off.
The forecast for the weekend is for frosts overnight so I might delay sowing carrots until next week. I keep anticipating an improvement in the weather but so far it’s just not happening.
This chart shows the predicted temperatures for 03:00 on Sunday morning. In May we don’t expect any red indicating a frost so any tender plants might need some extra protection.
As we hadn’t made a trip to the plot, I decided to prick out some young brassica plants in the greenhouse. All these seedlings have germinated in the cold greenhouse and were in need of moving into rather more spacious accommodation.
I like to reuse these plastic modules as many times as possible. Last week we planted our young strawberry plants into the allotment and the empty trays were on the greenhouse floor ready to be used again. The insides had been given a brush out and looked clean. I had a quick look underneath and found these small snails taking refuge in the crevices formed in the plastic.
So the underneath of the modules got a good brushing too to remove all the snails that were just waiting for me to plant up my cabbage ready for their next meal.
