A great thing about blogging is that I can look back to what was going on at the same time last year and compare with the current year. And February 2007 is warmer and drippier than February 2006 was, which is probably a good thing, because we have about 50% more snow than we did last year.

I'm eagerly awaiting my first seed shipment, and have been pouring over an ever growing pile of seed catalogues. I may be able to start a few things in the spare room with a grow light. Molly and I are in discussion about this.

Time to go and tidy up Rupert's pen, top up the water, hand out some hay and bring in some firewood. Then it's nap time, as I have picked up an extra shift this evening.

I will be interested to hear what seeds you decide on and how your garden grows this year. We are still at the experimental stage finding what grows well up here,we are classed as 2B what is it there? Of course all the berries do well and broad beans as well as chard but scarlet runners don't do well at all. We have extremely clay soil which although very rich for the plants inhibits their growth so we have to put a lot of sand and mulch etc to aereate it.
