|January: first kale shoots|
|Celery, sown Jan 17, pictured March 17|
It's peas that have shown the most promise. Now the kittens have discovered tinned food, and won't really settle for the cheaper, poxy dried stuff anymore I find myself with a steady stream of tins (they can get through one a day between the two of them). Hammer a few holes in the bottom for drainage, and you've got yourself a supply of pea pots. Pleasingly, the peas have taken well to any compost or soil I've put them in, and seem to germinate happily in very little direct sunlight. So I'm calling that a win: every time the cats have eaten their way through a tin of food, another few peas can be sown. Cycle of life I suppose.
