For the first time in weeks I heard on the weather forecast today a positive comment about a possible break in the winter weather. It won't happen until the weekend but possibly, hopefully, the wintry weather will end on Saturday or Sunday. It can't come soon enough. Our greenhouse is filling rapidly with seedlings that need to be planted out. Over the weekend, we planted into seed trays the onion sets and garlic that we would have preferred to plant straight into the ground. Sharp night time frosts means nothing is being planted out at the moment. We simply have to get as much ready as possible in the greenhouse for planting once the warmer spring weather arrives.
The positive point about the weather over the past couple of weeks however is that it has been relatively dry.
