Snow in April

I thought it was meant to be showers? It is April showers… right? Except we have had snow, hail and ice. Last night we were at -1. What?

I mean I’m used to Wales… I know that sometimes the weather can be tough. I mean last year the climate did nothing but rain. But this year I am stressed.

The tomatoes are in and the seeds. They are in the greenhouse and they should be fine, but we haven’t got any heating in there. Instead, the greenhouse warms up during the day and expels the heat during the night. We have popped down stones to help this happen. And so far it is working.


You can see that the tomatoes are a little ragged around the edges but they are doing great. Then there are the broad beans. They are outside… And the carrots.

So… The sad looking plants are are broad beans and the carrots… Well, they are just absent. The only thing growing in that bed is my bird scarer!

Still, after last year I had thought the soft fruit would have taken a bashing. But this year all the gooseberry bushes are covered in flowers. And they seem to not mind the temperature. I’m not sure we will have much in the way of broad beans though. At least not for a while.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed about the carrots.
