Leggy seedlings

When we first moved into our house neither M or I were gardeners so the number of sunny windows wasn't high on our list of housy priorities... Oops!

Of course the saving grace with tomatoes is that they can be potted up right upto the leaves without any problems so they should be fine in the end, fingers crossed...

I'm still a bit wary of starting seeds off in the greenhouse at the moment as the last few nights have dipped below freezing here but I think it's probably time to risk a few brasicas at the weekend. At least it will make the greenhouse look a bit more lived in...




Oh and this is my first attempt at mobile blogging so hope it looks ok by the time it arrives...
