Happy New Year to you too.

I love new year's day as it's the start of growing all over again. All I have to do now is curb my enthusiasm and NOT start sowing things far too early. :iconbiggrin:

Same to you and to all :-)

Literally the moment the clock struck twelve, my enthusiasm for the garden came back in bucketloads!

Cannot WAIT to get going...just have to plant my native edible hedge first!

And the same to you all from me, too...

Definitely need to get the three fruit trees planted this spring, before it turns into summer again! Apart from that, the raised beds need sorting out (and few nails and a bit of banging in the right places). But definitely no sowing of seeds of any kind yet! House is too cold for anything to germinate, anyway.

So is ours Ina, we have crappy electric heating which is totally inadequate for the extreme cold we have had these last few days. Not complaining though, love the white sparkly mornings.
