The weather forecast is grim. Snow is on its way. Wales and the west will get it first and we are due to follow tomorrow afternoon. We already have about 5cm on the ground from earlier this week but we are being warned that the forthcoming snowfall will be heavy, though for us, less heavy than South Wales. All this means that our plans to build our allotment shed this weekend are on hold. Ideally, I would like it built before the end of the month but that is now in doubt.
The ground is too frozen hard to dig and it's too early to be doing anything in the greenhouse (though I have a few onion sets growing there). I do however have some sprouting seeds to set away which I can do back home. This will be a useful fresh supplement to our diet.
