Example text

This pleases Dirty Nails, who has been patiently biding his time as far as outside planting is concerned. This week he has been sowing carrots. There are carrots for all seasons and soil types. For an early harvest on rich, loamy soil he plumps for a variety such as Jeanette F1. This Nantes hybrid produces lovely cylindrical roots, ripe for pulling from July onwards. Well before that, however, the thinnings will serve up the sweetest of treats either munched raw, Bugs Bunny style, or lightly steamed.

Not only do they accommodate a lot of A R C H 3 R D W E E K March 3rd Week compostables deep down, but they also ensure that liquid will be concentrated where it is most needed as his potatoes become established. Peppers and Tomatoes Peppers can be planted now in the greenhouse with a little heat, or on a kitchen window-sill. Dirty Nails cultivates Ring o’ Fire, which is as hot as the name suggests, and Long Red Marconi, a juicy sweet-tasting pepper. He pops the flat round seeds into pots of moist compost to about 1⁄2 inch (11⁄2 cm) depth.

The seeds sown into this. Carrot seeds are pin-head sized ovals with ridges running length-ways. For ease and accuracy of handling, Dirty Nails empties some of the seed packet contents into the palm of one hand and takes a small pinch from this with thumb and forefinger of the 20 March 2nd Week other. Each pinch is sprinkled thinly into the drill. It is easy to drop in clumps of seed by mistake if done in a hurry, so he takes his time to do a proper job. Even-sowing of seed now makes for easier and less wasteful thinning out later.
