We've had a bit of snow yesterday and today, but really we've got off lightly compared with some parts of the country. This photo was taken mid-morning today when we had about 2½" on the ground.
By early afternoon there was about 3½", but with a little bit of a thaw, plus a bit more snow, that's about it. The forecast looks marginally more promising for the rest of the week. The green leaves poking through the white stuff is some of the garlic I planted in October.
The only job that I was actually able to do was to sow my early onions. So, we now have 40 cells on 'Centro' and 80 of 'Vento'. These are aimed at the village show in September, and maybe the rather bigger show in Faversham. The are now on one of my heated propagators at around 20C which should ensure germination in a week to 10 days. I'll likely make a further sowing next month.
The December sown 'Kelsae' are mostly at the first true leaf stage and coming along just fine.
The first chillies have germinated, but hardly worth photographing yet. Both 'Stumpy' and 'Inferno' are well away. The remaining variety, 'Firecracker' will take a while longer before they break the surface of the compost.
