A bit of early planting

I started some Broad Beans off in toilet roll tubes at home, now they have tall stems & a good root system, it's time to plant them in the Greenhouse, while its relatively empty. 
So now in the greenhouse, which is unheated, approx 8" apart, supported by horizontal string between canes. 
The soil has been well weeded, some 'Grow Organic' added & a handful of Chicken Pellets too. 
The large green leafy thing is 'Mizuna' a type of salad leaf that has a peppery taste, so lovely in salads, added to a sandwich or a handful on top of a pizza (after cooking) is lovely.
Another job to do was to move the Spinach Beet, its a type of perpetual Spinach and should transfer OK. 
Had to move it because I need the patch where it was growing for Potatoes soon, will need to prepare and get it ready.
The green netting tunnel on the left has Kale growing, its been there over winter and now its warming up should be getting bigger soon. 
So another lovely day today, forecast is for rain all day tomorrow (Sunday) so glad we got down this afternoon to do a few jobs. 
We have started loads at home, Tomatoes, Peppers, Aubergines, Cucumbers, Cauliflowers, Broad Beans, Coriander & Basil. Will have to get some special seedling compost so I can start off some Chilles too.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian.
