The seeds I planted a few weeks ago have been growing bigger by the day, infact it looks like I’ve got a 99% success rate – not bad for a beginner! As frost seems unlikely now I decided to clear some windowsill space (bit of a jungle developing!) and transplant the bigger plants to the raised beds – within 20 minutes we have what looks like a veg garden! French beans and Broad beans with netting over to stop the birds and cats from destroying my hard work – I’ve evn installed a copper strip on the top of the boards supporting the beds to try and stop slugs – apparently it sends an electric charge when they cross it – worth a go – I’ll have to see if it works. Fingers crossed the plant survive outdoors!
