“Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed. Robert H. Schuller


This is a bit of a religious quote for me but it grasps the potential of seeds. From one the possibility for life is endless. Springtime is seed time.

So what did I sow?
In the propagator:-
Tomatoes: Marmande, Cuor di Bue, Datterini.
Basil: Lettuce leaved and Bush
Marjoram, Dill, Parsley
Cayenne Chilli Pepper
Courgette: Alberello di Sarzana
Cucumber: Picolino
Leek: Pandora

At the allotment:-
Onions: Red Baron and Centurion
Broccoli: Raab

As I walked up to my plot I inhaled the sweet smell of the earth. I felt enlivened by it. I was very pleased to find that the broad beans were poking out of the ground with only a couple of duds, so there I popped in replacement beans. I was most upset to see my chitting potatoes devoured by a rodent though! An intruder in my shed no less. I'm thinking no chitting next time, I'll just get them in the ground. I have some Raab broccoli seed from a Grow your Own magazine last year and I thought I'd give it a go. It's a dwarf variety ready in 60 days, it will be interesting to see what it's like. I took my whole seed box with me thinking I'd get some other things in but I did lots of weeding and wondering but got nothing else sowed. I think the weather is going to be ok for Saturday but I did notice the first blistery pox of my boy's back tonight so I think I'll be playing nurse to my sweet boy and his chicken pox this weekend instead!

I hope your son isn't suffering too bad. I remember my daughter having chicken pox and she wasn't really very poorly with it, but my son was literally covered from head to toe, and it was so painful. Make sure you've got plenty of calamine lotion in. I went to the allotment today, but the ground was very soggy after yesterday's rain, so I got a few jobs done and then came home again and sowed yet more seeds.

Thank you for your comments. My poor boy and his chicken pox. He's been brilliantly brave with bouts of total despair. He's been really uncomfortable and itchy at night which means neither of us has had much sleep. Plenty of books, games and tv today I think. I've been giving him soothing baths with bicarb. of soda and bags of oats using old tights. They make a welcome break from the itching.
