There was some snow on the plot too. It thawed fairly quickly though.
The very first daffodil had flowered! Very early. We have avoided any long lasting cold this winter, so I think the soil is already warming up. I found a few small weed seeds germinating and some bigger ones doing ok under my black covering fabric.
So I decided to fork over a section and I will wait and see what the weather does. It would be nice to get a longer than normal growing season this year. I popped some onions I had grown in pots into the cold frame. I will give them a week or two there and stick them into their permanent bed in early March.
I also picked up a cheap clear plastic box that I amgoing to pin down as a cloche and then I will sow a few broad beans underneath in a week or so, once the soil underneath might have warmed up.
I feel that spring is almost here, but perhaps that is just wishful thinking....
