No dig diary, 14th March 2021

I had no plans for sowing more seeds until the weekend, but whilst I was in his greenhouse with my father-in-law today he discovered three packets of mixed-colour sweet peppers. The fruit can be purple, brown, black, cream, orange, yellow and probably others I’ve forgotten. We like to have the different colours in salads and other dishes. The seeds were a few years out of date and he was going to throw them away, but I was completely unable to find any seed for such peppers this year (except “mini” peppers), so I took all three packets and sowed them in a small tray of compost to see what happens. Anything that germinates is a bonus.
