Snow problem; vegetable patch preparation!
The first snow forecast of winter resulted in an early gardening start as I had to remove the small gauge netting from the roof of my vegetable cage to prevent the frame collapsing under the weight of the white stuff.
Dawn on a very frosty morning in Staffordshire found me unclipping the netting from the sides and then rolling it back. It is a very large cage and it took two of us almost an hour to remove the netting. I keep it in the greenhouse over winter and the winter sprouts and other greens are protected from the pigeons and pheasant by a two-inch square net roof.
I was glad to see a heavy frost as my leek crop is being damaged by the unseasonal warm weather and they are still growing and splitting. I hope the cold will help them recover.
