Reading through the BBC website to keep up to date with the UK news it appears there is still very cold and icy weather with deep falls of snow.
Whilst we have had our snow as well the weather has started to turn springlike. Yesterday morning we had a crisp frost but so clear and blue. This morning it was similar but no apparent frost.
We are going over to Jean Blanc this afternoon to prepare the vegetable area. Yesterday Henry and I roped off an area of the field at the back (the east facing side) ready and raked out a patch of soil.
We will be sowing some of the early stuff later with the intention of growing as much of our own produce as possible.
