Yes, I have managed to walk to the allotment today in -2 degrees, so my smile is currently frozen to my face. I had to get my kitchen scraps down there, or they would start to pile up and I would have to get the bike trailer out to get them there soon!
Anyway since the 2ft of snow that we had I am sad to report that my Brassica Cage (yes, your guess is as good as mine - remember that? it's gone. The snow crushed it so I went last week to salvage what I could of what was left. Some of the rods were totally snapped and others badly bent under the strain of the weight!!
This means that I have now exposed my Brussel Sprouts to the eliments and the wildlife, so the thought of eating home grown sprouts for Xmas this year may not happen after all. I will probably get a few savoy cabbages and if we don't get a white Xmas I might be able to did some parsnips up - although I might just go and do this tomorrow and just bung them in the freezer??
Anyway the good news is that Junior's Broad Beans have sprung to life........
