Snow and Frost
We have had a decent fall of snow over the past few days, though today it is beginning to thaw. Yesterday Jean took half a dozen leeks. They came up easily through the snow. Today a quick inspection showed the water tanks have quite a lot of ice in them. I hope the plastic bottles have taken up some of the pressure at least. Once the ice melts I'll see if any of the pipes have split. Inside the greenhouse it was quite snug, with no ice at all.
