What has happened to spring? Cold grey and miserable I am not looking forward to gardening today. Yesterday 20 miles east it was snowing, here luckily only rain and the ground is again sodden. I know I shouldn’t work soil this wet but I am still driven to get as much planted before the spring rush.
One upside is that the often fleeting blossom on early cherries is still around held by the cold. The snowdrops are now mostly well over and daffodils are holding sway in gardens and hedgerows, their show will last longer too if this nasty easterly continues to hold us in its thrall.
The tomatoes are now up, the pepper is just starting to appear. I might sow some nasturtiums this weekend in the hopes that the weather will cheer up sometime soon.
