Yep - today it's definately freezing. Or it nearly was - on Dartmoor overnight. There's a nasty cold wind blowing and it's been raining on and off. Despite that I got in a couple of hours in the garden. I finished digging the vegetable plot near the greenhouse and then assembled the raised bed I bought to grow strawberries and salads in.
The rain has at least made the ground a little easier to dig but we haven't had enough yet and it is still very hard. The old apple tree is in full blossom again this year. Every year could be it's last as it grows more and more bracket fungi each year which we knock off to keep it going for as long as possible. It is about 80 years old so full of character and every other year we get a good harvest of cooking apples.
