The weather over the last few days has been glorious giving me an opportunity to get outside and do a bit of tidying, pulling dead leaves off the cabbages, cutting back dead stems and a little bit of weeding. The cabbages with the lovely colours, are ready to eat, but they look far too nice to harvest. Sadly one will be picked on Sunday for lunch, but that is what they are there for, how can I get sentimental about a cabbage?
The difference in the weather is a shock to the system - mild and reasonably warm for most of the week - then the temperature dropped rapidly and heavy frosts prevail.

Spring isn't as near as we thought - it is still winter and who knows what is yet to come?
