And for fun, here is the same view 3 years ago…
Well it’s been a while, last post here (right now) is from a cold January, although I’ll probably fill in a bit in between. Last few months have been brutal, both in terms of events and temperature.
So it goes.
Now we are finally up at 20 degrees, no more frost, time to start planting out!
Today i put seeds in the greenhouse and the two raised beds in the front garden. Peas mainly in the raised bed you can see in the featured image!

Internet says Minus6 outside
Window thermometer says minus6
Carbon mononxide monitor over by window says 1
Thermometer in iddle of house says 2
Kitchen thermometer says 10 after burning the stove for an hour.
