WHAT A GEM

Did any of you watch the Carol Klein gardening programme tonight...Grow Your Own Veg. It's one of my "must see" TV programmes. Featured on it was Harry Wardle, he is a BLIND allotment gardener and an inspiration to all. His vegetables are wonderful yet he can't see a thing! If you missed it I think it is repeated on Mon 29 Jan, 19:30 - 20:00.

Talking of vegetables I usually start some Little Gem lettuces indoors during the Autumn and plant them out under cloches for the winter. We get a nice early crop that way. I didn't do it last Autumn so think I may have to do an indoor early spring sowing; any excuse to do some gardening!

Our Little Gems May 9th 2006;

these had been outside ALL winter under one of Mick's home-made cloches.

I'm going to start some lettuce outside, under glass, in the next week or two. As they grow up, if they do, I'll show a picture too.
