    Default Bit chilly !

    Was down to -4.8 in my greenhouse last night. Thankfully I donít have much veg/fruit in there apart from garlic and strawberries which should be fine. My salad leaves and leeks that are outside in the beds are frozen solid. Not sure the salad will survive this kind of weather.

    There's an overnight forecast for -9 in the place I have my fruit tunnel. I have bundled up my one year old Chilean guava plants as best I can, but I think somehow I won't be finding out what they taste like this year either.

    Minus 3.8 here last night and the freezing fog/mist hasn't lifted all day.
    An elderly looking wood pigeon that's been pottering round the garden for a few weeks now is currently going bonkers at the bird food.

    Greenhouse was -4.9c here last night, the price one pays in winter for a being in a sheltered sun trap in summer

    Forecast today: over night -1, daytime +4
    Actual temperature overnight -7, max daytime -3
    Current forecast for THIS AFTERNOON from the met office +1
    Minimum forecast for tonight -1. Not quite sure how that is going to work.

    Not impressed. If they can't get now right what hope have they for later on?

    Last night the temperature inside the garage dropped to -1.5 with the heater on.

    Not sure what the greenhouse temperature was last night as I haven't yet replaced the broken thermometer But outside it was showing a reading (from the inside/outside one in my north-facing kitchen) of -7c overnight Warmest (warm? ha!) it got in daylight hours was -1.5c

    Got home at 6pm. Clear courtyard. Looked out window at 7pm and there was a covering of snow!
