Liri, hope the throat is better today, my bro in law grew up in Galway and had a wonderful childhood. 

Hi oneofseven good to see you on the chatter thread 

I think we'd better all wrap up warm today and thoughts with those who are in for some really bad weather.

Ann my Rainbow Chard is also doing well even after frost and snow, same with perpetual spinach   That Kale is very strong and in my opinion bitter. Fidget posted about a veg called Brokale ? spelling grows like sprouts and is a cross in terms of taste between broccoli and kale I'm thinking about that for next winter.

Bill I just don't know how you survive those temperatures  

Frank you've got my nose twitching showing off here   I am having my garden peas tonight from the freezer but have only one more helping left along with sprouting broccoli cut an hour ago

It's been dry and bright all day but only reached 4C  with a bitter wind. We've been cutting up Elaeagnus, Pineapple broom(correct name evades me), buddleja and ceanothus that were snow and wind damaged and even though wrapped up to the nines I had to call it a day so cold I felt ill  WIMP ! 

Clari patience is a virtue  but try telling that to keen gardeners.

No snow here yet but would not be surprised to get some. I told OH we would need the throw on the beds tonight  I meant on our bed but was thinking about the garden at the time All snuggled up cosy in GH especially little Fidget (Brugmansia) even put some fleece on my winter salads. 

Edd I take photos of my plants and where they are so I can look back but can't always find the right photo 

Stay snug and warm everyone, especially Bill.
