Making a Start

We cleared our desk which is 120 x 80 cms and placed in front of the big window which is West facing. There's plenty of light without much direct sunlight (but the sunsets are amazing!)

We already had some week-old supermarket chives and basil seen here in the mugs.

We bought a basic unheated windowsill propagator kit, a few plant pots and 4 packs of seeds: Tomatoes, Rocket, Lettuce and Spinach. I reckon the rocket and spinach should be quite straightforward but am less confident about the lettuce and especially growing tomatoes indoors.

We also have a bag of compost, peat-free of course. So here we go, green-fingers crossed!
