Hard to believe it, but the peas and broad beans planted on New Years eve have survived the move outside. They are currenly residing under a Lidl mini-greenhouse, so the snow is not landing on them. In the bright periods between snow, the little greenhouse is getting very warm, and they are even growing a bit.
The garlic planted back in October is very well established - better then the onions planted at the same time.
And the garlic planted in November - kindly sent by Spade Work right at the end of the month - is starting to peep through. So there is a bit of growth, in spite of the terrible weather.
And there's plenty of warmth when the sun does shine - our solar water heater got the water up to 41 degrees today.
