Walked dog in very heavy frost, my feet skidding on icy puddles, then sang in church choir, think we were all a bit off key during the anthem; church was so cold I thought my nose was going to fall off.
I was 'stumped' with that word stumperie, googled it and realised that in a previous garden had done a bit of stumperie, without knowing it was a branch of gardening; just wanted somewhere for ferns etc.
Checked the slightly heated g/h and found it did drop below 0 last night, but only just. I have this electric heater system that kicks in at 7c.
Harvested leeks, looked accusingly at mint in g/house, watered apricot tree in g/h.
Peas in cold frame surviving (they are suitable for Autumn planting). Steamed leeks added green olives and vinaigrette, yum
