Cold in the garden today.

Taking shape.

Taking shape.

We had a very cold day here today with the greenhouse down to -3.5 deg,but at least staying dry.This allowed some work to be done in the vegetable garden area earlier today.The clay that was left there earlier in the year was levelled off a little.Having covered that small area earlier yesterday with some mypex covering all went well.Some more clay along with compost or manure will be added to that lower area and hope to start some herbs there in the new year.

As usual you are ahead of the possi, John. Great to be as organized as you always seem to be.

Great that you got that done, ground not frozen to bad then.

I'm afraid I'm not as brave as you, John. Our temperature is slightly milder (only -2 in the greenhouse last night) but you still wouldn't catch me doing any outdoor gardening.

You are made of hardy stuff, John to be out in that weather.  Hats off to you!

Thank you all.

When out in the garden yesterday,but for the hot cups of tea it would be a different story here Mairin.Quite different today with a biting wind and showers.
