Crikey it's cold!

Welcome back to Reads Retreat, where like most people we are just about coping with the big freeze! We've had some pretty heavy snowfall, and are only venturing outside when we have to! Already I'm thinking I should have opened the water butt, as the whole lot is frozen solid now, and the ice has backed up the filler pipe and into the gutter. I tried to turn the tap this morning but that too is frozen. Let's hope the tank doesn't split!

I guess it's gonna be a while before we start planting! There's not really much that can be done at all, so we'll sit back and let the weather do what it wants.
By all accounts, we are quite lucky, as so far we've had no power cuts. I'm back to work in the morning, and already dreading the drive to work.
Take care all, wrap up warm and enjoy as best you can.

Happy New Year

Welcome back to Reads Retreat, and a Happy New Year to you all.

Cold weather is forecast here for at least the next seven days, so it might be a while before we post a gardening update, but we look forward to sharing our gardening exploits with you all for another year.

Drop by soon, and hopefully read some gardening news.

Take care all,
