After the first snow.

Snow and frost went away briefly at the beginning of this week. Leeks have taken a complete battering - though mainly from the really low temperatures, down minus 10 if not lower.

spring broccoli seems to have survived quite well.
chinese cabbage and broad beans are both still under fleece - and will stay that way - but have come through ok.

brussels don't look so good though - and these are supposed to be a winter crop!

lettuce, spinach and small brassicas in the greenhouse were looking ok but we've now got another series of really cold nights, no snow but temperatures forecast to not rise above freezing all week - even in day time. wonder how many plants will survive till Spring.
