welcome to my little suburban oasis, filled with flowers,fruit trees and vegetables

Friday, 3 December 2010


We've had a bit of snow here this week. It started with a light fall on Saturday but though the roads cleared the garden stayed covered.

Temperatures have been dropping to minus 7, so hubby covered the broad bean row with a cloche and I moved all the cabbage seedlings into the greenhouse - and double lined it with fleece AND put propagator lids over the lettuce and spinach just to be on the safe side.

Then Tuesday evening, more snow fell. And then on Thursday. Friday has been a clear fairly sunny day - though temperatures haven't really got above freezing - but the bigger roads were clear of snow. Then about 9 this evening snow started falling again!

The garden is fast disappearing back under its blanket. Wonder how much there will be to see tomorrow.
