Seeds arrive!

Today our seeds have arrived, ready to be sorted and planted! Looking at the weather, we still have another week or two of frost still to come, so seedlings will need to be raised indoors in the warmth. Some of the seedlings in the greenhouse froze last night! We had a forecast of -1 degrees celcius, but this morning getting ready for work, it was a balmy -4 degrees outside and the poor cucumber seedlings suffered, even under cover in the greenhouse! So the seeds will be raised inside until the risk of such severe frost is over and hopefully we can start planting out in our plots in the coming 2-3weeks.

Ahh the joys, it is always a bit of a gambling game this frost business…
