First hard frost
Despite the recent storms, temperatures this winter so far have been mild. We have had no snow and before last night, we had had no significant frost. And then this morning I went to the allotment to let out the hens and feed and goats and found everything covered with a white layer of frost. The mud was frozen and stayed so throughout the day, except where we were working. We also used the incinerator this afternoon so in one corner of the allotment, the mud was back. The forecast is for the rain to hold off on Monday until the late afternoon. At least we aren't flooded out like some areas of the UK.
