Gardening Indoors

I have just bagged a corner of our garden room for growing some leaves. Now we have this new space, it seems a shame not to use it for something useful, and I have failed this year to grow enough leaves in the tunnels to keep us supplied. Hopefully this will work out ok will post progress as it does or doesn't happen

Seems a sensible idea - have space, need food eh?

I have just started the second lot of chives on the warm light window sill so that come spring outside they will be ready to be potted on up the allotments.

We've grown small amounts of salad leaves in seed trays. Succession planting a week apart over a few weeks gave each tray time to recover from a picking and they didn't take up much room on the sills.

You can't beat indoor gardening, especially on a day like today.
That looks a nice growing area with plenty of height for at least on tomato. :lol:
Plus what looks like a Valor paraffin heater to keep it all warm.

Well spotted OS, it is a Valor heater, but it is for show only, the insides of it were rusted, a neighbour gave it to me years ago and we had it blasted and the Wizard has recently painted it for me, I stand plants on it. I may even go with a tomato plant, you never know, but there is not heating in this room just a woodstove, but I think it stays frost free

But you have a personal juke box!!!! (envy, envy) ...
Put on hot music and the seeds will come up rocking and keep themselves warm (yes, I've had a glass of wine).
