Hardening first crop

I’m hardening out my first crops to be planted after the frost this Thursday. The plants are getting a bit big and I’m hoping they will be able to hang on another few more days.

Tuesday and Wednesday have hard frosts overnight and then no more frosts on the forecast – fingers crossed.

I’m going to invest in a green house in fall. I don’t have the patience to play this game with the weather.

Planting to early

In my keeness to get planting, I have planted my early broad beans too early. In Mid January we had a warm spell and so I thought I would benefit by planting out the broad beans that had grown well in the greenhouse.

The last 3 nights have had hard frosts and there’s more to come. I expect to lose most of this crop and so I have sown some more as backup.
