FEBRUARY a tough week tangled
I have young sweetpeas and chilli plants growing in my bedroom, and spring bulbs sprouting in pots out on the rooftop. Happy days in Holloway. The sweetpeas are from seeds home-grown in a kitchen garden in Wales and the chillies from seeds home-grown on a windowsill in Arsenal. The shiny foil around the indoor pea plants is an attempt to get them to grow straight, while the netting round the bulbs is to deter squirrels. A tough week has been tangled with tiny vines and made much more manageable.
