This has been the coldest winter that I can remember. I am trying really hard not to complain, because it could be worse. It could be raining and miserable. We have had about 5 frosts in a row. This is a good thing for a gardener. It is great for building great soil structure by breaking up the lumps and any pests and disease lingering in the cracks and crevices hoping for a mild winter are taken down a peg or two.
It is about as cold as it gets around here and the upside of it all is the incredibly gorgeous blue sky days that come with the ice. Have a look at what a cold winter morning looks like around here:
Come again soon – We’re about half way through winter and spring is just around the bend and before you know it I’ll be sowing the seeds of a new season.
