Brrrr....bit chilly here

Apologies for no pictures however it was minus 4.2 degrees overnight & I wasn't going to turn myself into an icicle for anyone!
Hope its warmer where you live.

It may be Winter but we are still growing strong.

In the greenhouse...
A thriving hydroponic unit, now that we have replaced the vermiculite with clay balls.

The seedlings are quite happy with their second set of leaves just starting to come through.

In the garden, the broccoli just keeps on growing, even after cutting the main floret & secondary shoots.

I'd better pick these for tea!
