Severe damage to the vegetables.

Wiped out.

Walking around the vegetable garden earlier on this morning,my first sighting were the dead stalks of Brussel Sprouts.Destroyed at the base.Some of the stalks are as if a bolt of thunder in the form of frost,struck them.Time to save what is left on the stalks and clear the bed of the remainder.

Damage from another source here - the cold weather led the pigeons to eat the leaves of broccoli (purple sprouting) plants and has left them as mere skeletons.  I expect they will recover and hopefully we will have broccoli in spring/early summer.

They wil recover,Paddy.Im very lucky here that pigeons dont trouble this area.In my days of gardening i have never saw so much damage.The ground froze so hard the bases were gone to rot when thawing started.We need the spring time more than ever now.
