    No frost here yet but trees/plants seem to be turning earlier here this year

    First day of scraping ice off the windscreen to get to work.
    Hopefully the sprouting grass seed won’t all die....

    Our coldest up to yet was on the 7th of this month with a low of 1.9c in my GH.

    Toms are still doing ok in there though.

    First frost this morning. A week to ten days later than most years, but hard enough for a mm or so of ice to form on puddles.

    First frost yesterday - just a dusting on the roof. This morning, some of the grass (can't describe it as lawn) still has frost on it.
    It may have been a lot worse earlier but I don't get up too early to see it.

    I suppose it's only yo be expected now we are heading towards Nicos's pointy stick
