Garden

So the Equinox has come and gone and still it snows.  Spring is slow to warm up this year which is probably predictable as I have been more organised on the garden front this year!  Usually at this time of a year the temperatures start to rise and I suddenly I am running around like a headless chicken trying to get seeds bought and sown.  The ground outside is still frozen and in the polytunnel it is nudging double figures in temperature (°C) on the days when the sun shines.

The seeds I sowed recently onions, radish, salad onions and salad leaves are not showing any sign of germinating I will probably need to sow again.  I was going to sow other seeds this week but with temperatures hovering around freezing I don't think there is much point just yet.  So the only thing going on my garden in the last two weeks has been that we built a new fruit cage to stop the birds eating all our berries before we can harvest them.  Let's hope the warm weather arrives soon!

  1. Everything will catch up. We don't normally start to sow until April here. A fruit cage is a great thing x
