I can’t help but feel that a better title for this series, for me, would be “Oops, it’s Tuesday!”. Yet another succession planning Tuesday has rolled around with L from 500m2 and I haven’t put nearly enough thought into what it is that I am planning on planning in succession!
Flicking frantically through my current seed stash to work out what I had that I could even need to plant, I found some popping popcorn that I had planted a while ago, but that hadn’t really germinated. Sold!
I filled four pots with some potting mix, added the seeds, and then watered. Hopefully this lot germinate better than the last ones!
I will point out, however, that of the six seeds I planted last time one of the seeds germinated, and I have had a little popping popcorn plant sitting forlornly in a starting pot for quite some time.
Today I decided to take pity on it, and transplant it into the vegie patch.
It’s the only one of its kind, so hopefully the other seeds get a wriggle on to keep it company!
While out there – and not strictly on the topic of succession planning – I have discovered that my pumpkin and cucumber might actually be getting somewhere!
That looks suspiciously like the beginning of a pumpkin to me!
And look! Teensy, tiny cucumbers! (They’re meant to be teensy tiny – they’re pickling cucumbers. I’m a sucker for sweet pickled gherkins, and I’m determined to try to make some this year!).
I also decided that I should check into whether the seedlings popping up in my brassica seedling trays are, indeed, brassicas. This is them currently:
They could be brassicas. But they could just as easily be weeds. So I googled. And this is what I found:
That looks similar enough to me! At least for now.
How is your succession planning going? Have you had any pleasant surprises in the garden lately?
