We’ve got another cold snap here, a sudden shock to the system but all this is good for the soil. I’m glad, almost all of my digging is done. I had to go to the allotment, I wanted to empty my kitchen scraps bucket so as I was there I tried to dig out some of my last few remaining parsnips. I was lucky – the soil was frozen on the top but it was quite easy to pull some parsnips out. A good thing about the hard soil is that the parsnips come out reasonably clean. I have got some more left, and the new plants – broad beans and garlic are coming up.
Life continues, soon will be time to plant and sow.
All my seeds are sorted out, put into groups , the greenhouse is clean, small pots are ready – all I need is more sunshine, longer days and warmth.
