A spell of winter

Yesterday morning was pleasant, the washing was out on the line early and dry in a few hours.   Mid afternoon it rained, late afternoon there was snow on the mountain behind us.  We talked to the man at our local agricultural store, he said the veggies we have planted out will be set back by this cold spell and never grow properly, we should always wait until 25 April to put them in the ground.  But all is not lost because he then sold us some fertiliser made specially for this problem, with regular feeding our tomatoes and aubergines will recover and flourish.  Unfortunately the remedy cost more than all the plants it will cure, we should have just started again - on the 25.
Enjoy your Sunday, I’m off for firewood and later plan to watch the Paris Roubaix cycle race on tv.


  1. It is set to warm up here by Easter. Can't come soon enough - it is cold with an easterly wind blowing straight through you. It is dry too with no rain to speak of for weeks and all the plants I have put in my border need watering - a bit of a chore.

  2. Bit nippy here in the NE, just how I like it. Have only just made the first of 2019 tour of the garden (didn't take long, it's a teeny plot). Quite a few gaps will need filling. And I have plans for a raised bed. Just need to remember to order one. Have a good week.

  3. If it makes you feel any better, we had sun, rain, hail and snow here yesterday!
