And this without the aid of an electric heated propagator. They have been inside unheated propagators, sitting on a windowsill above a central-heating radiator.
This is one of the "Incas" ones that Jo sent me:
The first of the Sweet Corn, sowed on the same day as the tomatoes, germinated one day later (5 days)
I have 16 of these, most of which will go into the Three Sisters bed I am planning. I reckon that I will need 12 for this, but it's always as good idea to have a few spares.
These are the home-grown Asparagus seeds that I sowed some weeks ago:
Yes, exactly. Nothing visible at all! Absolutely no sign of any germination here. Maybe they were not fertile after all. I'll give them another week and if there's still no sign I think they will have to go - I need the windowsill space they are taking up.
The Garlic I planted a fortnight ago is showing signs of life now...
I wonder how it will compare with the Autumn-planted version?
