The Begonia('Tom Foolery'), Impatiens and French Marigold('Boy O Boy') seeds were all collected from plants last year so it will be interesting to see how they develop. The Begonia('Destiny') and Impatiens seeds that were planted in late January and are doing very well were germinated from seeds collected from last years plants so i am hopeful that this second batch will also do as well.
I checked the outside tap, lubricating all the seals and re-installed it this afternoon.When the water was turned on in the house again there were no leaks so that's a good start to the season. Unless the weather takes a really nasty turn for the worse the risk of freezing pipes should be past by now. I also cleaned and lubricated all the valves and moving parts of the manifold which will be re-installed on its mounting tomorrow, weather permitting.
The tomato and aubergine seedlings are developing well, the tomato seedlings are developing a little too quickly and i do not have the space to store them so i will need to find new owners for them in the near future.
