    Had to take my fleece jacket off while digging on the allotment. It was 13C and beautiful in the sunshine - first warm sunny day in ages The cat is loving the door being ajar, so she can come and go as she wants - she hates using the cat-flap lol
  2. SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 11/02/2018 onwards

    It started off calm and quite bright, overnight low of 3C which was warmer than expected. Now it's 7C, overcast with the odd patch of drizzle and wind has got up, gusting at 32mph. I retreated from the garden into the greenhouse for my coffee - much nicer in there :)

    Heavy snow showers here - big fat snowflakes, very pretty - but not settling as the ground is too wet at 3C

    Not posh at all, just a bog standard one - the electric propagator is in the kitchen and so are the windowledges for growing the tomatoes, til it's warmer

    Garden thermometer says 5C but it's flipping freezing out in that wind from the North. Hat, scarf and gloves weather. The cat decided she didn't want to go out after all, once the door was opened lol Can't say I blame her

    Yes, I'm glad I got on with clearing beds whenever it was bright/warm enough - looking at the forecasts it's going to be too cold for the next few weeks to do anything much outside Thank goodness for greenhouses Inside the heated propagator indoors - I've sown a couple of seeds of dwarf tomatoes (will be grown on a windowledge for an early crop) and my onions. In the cold greenhouse I've sown my sweetpeas. The rest can wait til there's more sunlight and it's a bit warmer. Roll on spring!

    It stayed just above freezing last night, so a frost free lawn - lovely to see the sunshine as well
  8. SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 01/01/2018 onwards

    Weird this morning, fog/low cloud has come down and part melted the frost on the grass - so wet and frosty at the same time. 2,7C now.

    Nobody else gardening? Sunny morning and quite mild so went to the allotment and moved some rhubarb, gave it a good mulch, so hopefully it will move ok. It was starting to grow already so I had to move it ASAP. Nice to get some fresh air and see a bit of

    Got up to 12C just after lunch, but starting to cloud over and cool down again, now though. It was so good to see a bit of sunshine this morning after all the grey days lately Roll on Spring

    Wind kept me awake most of last night, but it was a lovely bright sunny (still windy!) day to follow. Dried the washing a treat but had to use twice as many pegs lol Still reading 6C outside here, feeling a lot cooler in that stiff breeze though

    Another case of - I didn't get it right so let's pretend I never said it!

    Me again! Sunny but cold yesterday, so a plot visit for veg. Potatoes, leeks. swede and Brussels. Had to dunk the leeks in a bucket 'cos they lifted with so much clay stuck to'em. Also did some raspberry pruning and some nattering.
