    DH has moved the wormery into the greenhouse temporarily, hope it helps warm them up and get them active again.

    Dug over 3 large raised beds and dug compost in and also dug over and manured potato patch. Then pulled some leeks, swede and brussels which then became part of a roast dinner. Yummy!

    Also brought back the last of the beetroot to experiment with turning into chutney...

    Planted a dozen strawberry plants out of pots that were taken off main plants in october into polytunnel and took another 12 runners off main bed put into pots of m/p compost, not sure these will take though? finished pruning rasbs & currants.

    Finished planting 'spare' tulip bulbs into tunnel border. Knocked out and re-potted all the lilies. Tidied out shed. Looked at greenhouse and decided it was too big a job for today. Went inside to warm up!

    Yesterday:

    Sorted through 20kg of peanuts by hand to pick out the ones that had goe mouldy. Iam keeping an eye on them for a couple of days to see if any more go mouldy if not I can start putting them out for the birds again.

    So far today:

    Erected polytunnel bought on ebay last november - extremely pleased it is much larger than anticipated and was easy to put up on my own.

    Next to do today:

    Sort out seeds and get come started in my new heated propagator and some in my normal propagators (i guess I wont be eating dinner off the dining room table for some months now).

    Binned some chilli plants i had in porch, just too cold for them and seemed to be infested with white fly, brought in strawberry runners (planted in own pots in summer),put into porch, got to be warmer than outside, heating up some compost in electric propergator for early toms (an experiment as i have loads of seeds), sorted out lean too on side of house (also known as gardening dumping ground by OH) and ordered some white tomato seeds off ebay.

    Did plan to do all sorts of things in the garden but it was -5 last night and at 8 o'clock this morning it was still -2 so I went back to bed and stayed there in the warm. A great day!! I can't believe people are planting things already - my greenhouse has sheets of ice over it and we're in the south!
