The rains came and then the snows. Last time we had bad rains in Gloucestershire, that’s all it was, rain…and lots of it. This time, i still had a problem getting home from work but i actually made it. The snow made it very exciting, so i grabbed the camera and went to explore the new incarnation of the veg plot!
Everything was covered with a thin covering of the white stuff, particularly the Japanese Onions which are more exposed. The early purple sprouting broccoli creaked under the weight, so had to be better supported, the rocket just sat there as happy as larry, still living! and i almost broke bones by nearly slipping over on the patio.
I’m pleased the rocket is still growing, and never realised that it was winter hardy until it started growing past everything else. There will definately be a larger pile this year. The cover had blown off the carrots that are still in the ground, i think that will be the end of them!
