Bush Beans

After only a week away, came back to find all seedlings doing really well - especially the bush beans - 'cherokee wax' or something similar. Brought a big bag of seaweed home and spread it all around the garden after giving it a good rinse.

I was surprised to see some seeds I'd left in pots in the greenhouse had sprouted; including some gourd seeds which I couldn't get to germinate before, so it just shows, its worth throwing them in and just waiting to see what happens sometimes. Most seeds seem to die from being over-watered and suffering from 'damping off'.
