This weekend I planted more seeds: tomatoes Bloody Butcher and more Beefsteak select, as well as capsicum Topepo, and coloured bell peppers. None of the seeds from the previous week had popped up yet.
I planted some more Kumara ( sweet potato or Yam ), and the ones I planted a few weeks ago are well under way. I have a good selection to plant, quite a few nice big ones are starting to sprout.I started them in pots on a heated pad. The larger ones will go to the greenhouse next week. The ‘tupu’ or sprouts are going strong – they are almost ready to plant if the ground was warm enough.
By the time I can put them in the ground in November they will be long and I will need to take cuttings. I did this last year and the cuttings worked just as well as taking the whole shorter tupu.
