Prepared for a mini-winter

The veg garden has been temporarily ( I hope) wrapped up again after forecast of snow and minus temperatures over the next few days.

As the potatoes are in raised beds; it is harder to 'earth up' so i cover them with straw. This year we have Earliers and 2nd Earlies so they can be grown closer together. They have had an extra layer of straw to help protect from the frost.

Unfortunately the peas will have to take their chance as the pea sticks are in place.

Hopefully there will not be too much damage or too colder temps.

The boys decided to come over to take a look in case they could be of help in veg disposal line!
