On Sundays I like to sit in the kitchen in front of the kitchen window with my breakfast and read a magazine whilst enjoying a coffee. It’s one of those things I look forward to during the week, the chance to slow down and take time in the mornings. I particularly enjoy this time of year when the sun starts to hit the windowsills that are crammed full of seed trays and seedlings getting a head start.
A few weeks ago I started my shallots off in a seed tray, they are doing really well inside and should be able to go to the greenhouse shortly. I like starting them off in trays so that I can transfer them off outside without covering them over, the birds tend to leave them alone when they have green shoots. Also as the weather has been a little mad recently it helps to start things off inside so that when the weather does warm up I won’t be too behind.
