Vegetable garden for today..

Some that pulled through.

Some that pulled through.

The weather has been good for today.A little dull but not noticed.The temperature reading at 7am was +4.It was from just after 4 o clock this evening i started back trying to pick and choose between damaged caggages from the bad frosty weather gone by.A lot of the Durham Earlies and some January Kings liked to pay a visit to the compost heap.The earlie cabbages in the tunnel headed there too.Having already removed any survivors to other beds wherever possible soon after the frost,they are now into the final cabbage beds.Some of the very weak plants had the roots dipped in composted manure,to try and help them on a little.Tomorrow evening time will be spent in the tunnel as early as possible.No plans for weekend work as yet.Pictures added to frost damage album.

So disappointing to lose so many cabbages due to the weather but hopefully those that survived will grow on well.

John, it's Thursday, no plans for the weekend yet? Your slipping up, haha. The cabbages will pull back fine, under your care.

You seem to have lost a lot.  Like Cloncaw, hopefully the remainder will survive.

I have looked at your pictures and by the looks of it you certainley know how to grow vegetables.  I'm sure you'll have those cabbages fighting fit soon

I'm sorry for it John,in my vegetable garden more damage did/doing "wild life",,rabits and birds,not frost.

Thank you all.

Hopefully Una,fighting fit they will be.[Thanks] The weather went hard again gardeners,starting from app 5 weeks back,but we all will have light at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks Liga,you had your share of trouble with the poor weather trouble.I enjoyed looking through the young plants here and making sure all was well.The weather put a stop to that.Not for long though,Spring approaches.
