Crown Prince

Wednesday’s weather took a bit of a dip from the last couple of days. The morning was misty with bits of light drizzle at times but the afternoon brightened up with some sunny spells. The mild spell continued but not as warm as is had been for the last few days.

Last year none of our squash seeds germinated. It wasn't that only the odd seed germinated not a single seed made any effort. Things have changed for the better this year and all six of the Crown Prince seeds sown have germinated.

When sown I thought I’d spaced the 6 seeds out equally in the seed tray but that doesn't look like the case now. After last year’s failure it’s good to see them germinate this year. Squash are good allotment plants as they can be used to fill up any spaces left on the plot especially if they have enough space to do their own thing.

In the greenhouse there was plenty of pricking out to do. Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and lettuce seedlings were all pricked out into modules.

All our sowings in May together with germination times and transplanting dates can be found here.
