Thursday 1st March – It’s supposed to be the end of Winter today but it was minus 6 this morning when we awoke! Regrettably the ground is so frosted that we are unable to dig parsnips and both the salad and spinach have taken a battering due to the cold weather so it will have to be good old roots this weekend in the main. We do have plenty of red kale, red cabbage and green cabbage available. Apologies, but we can’t be responsible for the weather.
Meantime we are busy, everything takes longer in the cold, but today’s task after the picking is to muck the asparagus, at least it will keep us warm!!
