Yellow daffodil snow we want.

Yellow daffodil snow we want.

This morning has started off on a bright note,with some lovely bright sunshine.Still on the cool side but not noticed.The place is in a mess,bringing back memories of not to long ago.Earlier on this morning around 8 am i checked the dull greenhouse.Noe that all snow has been removed [thanks to my neighbour] all is nice and bright again.Temperature then back to 0 deg,but will improve.The vegetable garden looks a right mess,and even worse when the full thaw comes.All work will be done in the seed room today,and hope to tidy up the place.

Second earlie potatoes will be into the vegetable garden between earlie and mid April at the latest.Hope to have some light lawn cuttings to use on the drills in two ways,1 for helping some of the way again potato scab,2 to act as a sort of green manure.

Your best to stay indoors today, John. It is bitterly cold out there. Just 1 degree. And so windy.

A little bit of sun here now but a bitterly cold wind. I'm definitely not tempted to be in the garden!

Weather on the poor side for sure Jacinta,when it is nice bright evenings all gardeners should be having.Picked up well here after lunch except for an odd snow and hailstone shower,but cold.

All gardeners plans upset again Myrtle,and along with the cold weather not to best to encourage going out of doors.Picked up a little here after lunch,but cold still in the air along with another touch of snow and hailstones paying a visit..
