had another week of snow and ice - temperatures down to minus ten at nights. water butts have been frozen with icy overflows down the sides. overall the garden is not looking well. discovered some snowdrop bulbs washed down from the rockery by melting snow today - tried to push them back in the ground but an inch or so down it is still frozen!
the brussels look worse than ever - I don't know if they'll crop but they're certainly never going to stand up straight again
found this red cabbage today though - hiding under a green cabbage leaf and looking surprisingly well.
