We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

I got to the allotment this morning and was greeted by the sight of water bowls frozen solid. The nights are still long enough to cause a freeze when there is little cloud cover. Hopefully in a early May we can aspire to be frost free but in the meantime, Pinkie our Golden Guernsey goat has to wear a coat through the night. After last week's sunny weather, we are experiencing a few days' blast of cold air from the Arctic.
