At the beginning of last week I planted some seeds sparingly so I didn't have glut of courgette plants taking up precious space in the modest greenhouse. A week later and only the cucumbers I planted at the same time have decided to make an appearance - not one courgette. Bloody typical. I tried a variety called Romanesco this time. Maybe they're like me, a bit slow.
Planted some Borlotti's too last week which have also made sporadic progress so I've sowed the whole bloody packet now in the hope that they'll catch up with the ones that have germinated. Again I've tried another variety from last year - these ones are climbers, not the dwarf ones I've had success with. Moral - if it ain't broke don't fix it!

I'm really hoping they will hatch as I'm curious about WHAT is going to hatch. Louis I and Jacques have both been 'busy' enjoying themselves with all the girls so some chicks will be throroughbred Marans whilst some will be Heinz 57's.
Time will tell...
