White and clean.

White and clean.

First we suffer from heavy rain a few weeks back,now snow frost and fog replace it.This morning we went to -9.From around 11 am the snow showers returned today.The birds were give fresh food and water earlier on just after first light.All other outdoor garden work was abandoned except for about thirty minutes clearing snow from the tops of the compost heaps in the vegetable garden.The tunnel was not touched as planned for today.Spent the most of the time after lunch helping out some friends effected with frost damage as much as possible.Weather keeps winning.

Once this cold spell is over we should see great improvement in the growth around us. Never say die!

Johnplotman Johnplotman 09 January 2010 21:28:25

That is for sure Jacinta.Bring on the green grass.We say enough of the white type.

It surely can't last for ever. And it does look lovely in your photo.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 09 January 2010 21:52:27

Hopefully it wont last much longer Fraoch [thanks].

A little all right Liga.From reports,tonight is to be the coldest and start to improve a little then.Not a lot though.

Roll on the green green grass of home.

Myrtle Myrtle 09 January 2010 22:26:16

Love the white too so clean!

Myrtle Myrtle 09 January 2010 22:29:48

Just saw the photos of the tunnel John, really looks like Spring in there. All ready to go.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 09 January 2010 22:31:54

Thats for sure Fran.Get the lawn mower ready for that green green grass in a short while.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 09 January 2010 22:38:52

If i could only keep it as white throughout the year as above Myrtle,pests would be defeated [thanks].I hope to get some vegetables in there about a month or more earlier than outside.[A big hope]
