-6C last night and the snow is still lying on the garden. The PSB in particular has been hard hit. Leeks are just about peeking out of the snow and I’m glad I picked some of the perpetual kale yesterday as its completely frozen today.
We found last year that due to our altitude the snow stays around for a long time in the garden, down in the valley its all melted a couple of days ago.
It does mean you have to plan ahead. I dug up some jerusalem artichokes before the freeze, the ground being too frozen to dig now. Again, as soon as it thaws a bit I will have to dig up some leeks, which are completely frozen into the ground at the moment.
