Sowing Seeds

Like every year, I've been busy in my greenhouse sowing my seeds for all the best veg that simply can't be bought in the supermarket.
Last year I was pregnant and went a bit over the top with the sowing and ended up with about 30 tomato plants. This would have been fine, except my daughter was born in July on a very hot week and all the greenhouse plants got totally neglected for a few weeks. So I've reined it in a little this year and gone for a few selected vegetables.
This year we will be enjoying only two varieties of tomatoes - Sweet Baby and Moneymaker. We will also be having Tiffany F1 Hybrid cucumbers, dwarf beans, mangetout, Jalapeno chilli peppers, mixed salad leaves and sugar snaps. I'm also growing a cluster of peas to use as pea shoots for salads.
I can't wait until it's time to harvest them!
