I did a search on the web for some leek seeds that could be sown in May and came across Atlanta and Tadorna from Suffolk Herbs. I sowed these today individually in rootrainers. I'll leave them in there until they are quite big as I have taken their space for something else and will have to wait for a clear spot when my early spuds are harvested.
At the show I bought some seeds of a "Horned Melon" called Kiwano, from the Robinsons seeds stand. They don't appear on their website, but googling found this information....http://www.wikihow.com/Eat-a-Kiwano-(Horned-Melon)
so I have high hopes for this. I have sowed 4 seeds today. The man selling the seeds said I just about have time to sow them for this year. We'll see. I have 4 seeds left to try next year if they fail.
I didn't get to the plot today as it just floated by in a haze of catching up with various jobs here. Tomorrow I must check on it all though.
