My vegetable seeds have arrived which is very exciting. For those of you that live in the UK – this year I got the whole lot from Nickys Nursery. I got some veg seeds and Herb seeds from her last year and was very pleased with the results.
This year she was stocking all the specific varieties that I wanted.
This year I am trying for the first time –
Beetroot Albina Ice – This is a white beetroot. I am not sure that I can get my head around a white beetroot, but we enjoy “Burpees Golden” – so we shall give it go!
Other new to me varieties include:-
Aubergine Fairy Tale,
Chilli Pepper Black Pearl, and
Cauliflower Sunset – so if all these grow – our veg patch is going to be a very colourful place to be.
Nickys Nursery Seeds do not come with full colour pictures on the packets – (another reason why I like them – no pressure to live up to a picture of amazing looking, perfect veg) – so rather than show you several packets of foil wrapped seeds – instead you get to see where I walked to-day.
It is very beautiful – there was so much water in the river from all the rain we have had over the past few days that the noise was deafening.
It is also quite steep – beats going to a gym any day
