Itching to get started.....

I'm itching to get started on the planting. But with more frosts forecast over the next few weeks, I know I shouldn't.

It's just that time of year, slight promises of better days with the sun giving us the odd peep from between the grey clouds, and if you stand in just the right sheltered spot you can feel warmth of her rays. If you stand the thermometer in the right place in the polytunnel the mercury shoots up, but then plummets disappointingly as the sun vanishes behind a cloud.

The seed packets have been sorted through and the polytunnel tidied, the wind up radio has been tried out and works a treat.........I'm raring to go.

But I think I should do as Archie does......and sit on the fence just a little bit longer.

  1. I forget just how very different our climates are!
    We won't be planting for many months yet, although we have garlic sleeping under the snow.

  2. Our garden will take ages to be ready for any kind of plantings yet. Still loads of leaves left from autumn, but you are giving me ideas, to get on with clearing up the mess! Ann x

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
