The allotment diary. What happens when, what works, what doesn't on plot 18 of Swanland allotments.

The first falls of snow melted away, but quite unusually for England some more has fallen and even more is forecast. The water tanks are very icy, but the shed is warmer than I expected, probably due to the greenhouse soaking up what sun there is.
The leeks look wilted in the frost, but I expect they'll be fine when they are thawed out. We'll take a few more in a day or two. Hopefully the snow will have stopped the ground freezing too hard so we can dig some out. There are some parsnips under the snow somewhere, I think they can stay where they are for now.
