Spinach

Gardening is quite a new thing to me. Although I've grown up exposed to gardening and have some knowledge of what needs to be done, I have little idea of what needs to be done when. So to give me some clues I've been watching Gardeners' World on BBC TV to provide some inspiration and guidance.

Yesterday's programme said it was time to plant hardy annuals in pots and to plant out spinach ready for a late autumn and early spring crop. So I've been rummaging through my mother's seed stocks and found a packet of spinach from 1976! Today I have planted up two tubs with these vintage seeds; one for me to take back to Manchester and one for here in Warwick.

I suspect the germination rate will be very low so I've sown far more seeds than I would have if they were new seeds. But one thing is sure - they have far more chance of growing when planted out then they would have if I left them in the p.acket. It'll be interesting to see the results and I shall update on the progress of the seeds.

Ian has outlined a simple and effective way to replace bad habits with good success habits which will help those that follow it achieve their goals.
