...comes the thaw. With the temperatures at a balmy 6 degrees for the last couple of days, the snow has admitted defeat & retreated to all but the most inaccessible of verges, & it is now very soggy underfoot indeed.
I didn't go to the Hill today - as it happens, I was otherwise occupied anyway, but reading returning allotmenteer Christine's blog entry I am very glad that I didn't rush to find the time to go.
Whilst I was out & about, though, I spent a very enjoyable half hour browsing round the garden centre & treated myself - at long last - to some roottrainers (which are posh sowing modules), & a packet of sweet peas.
I then spent a very enjoyable half hour in the kitchen sowing the sweet peas, a pot with a few LETTUCE (dazzle & hsl stoke) & a larger pot with a few good pinches of LEEK saved from last year, which are hopefully viable.
Roll on Spring!
