I paid a visit to the allotment this afternoon. We now have about 30cm of snow in Sunniside and it has caused some damage on the allotment. The roof of the fruitcage has been wrecked. It has collapsed under the weight. The issue now is how to replace it next year. Do we put a wire netting roof on, or one that cane be removed in the autumn? We'll decide next year.
The snow has put an end to plans to make more leaf mould, gather hawberries for making ketchup and digging up Jerusalem artichokes.
