Jack frosts done some damage..

Up at the allotment this saturday, mild weathers allowed things to flourish. However recent cold spell has resulted in some damage. The fennel was lookin good up until now, the liquid filled cells have frozen, expanding and damaging the structure; the result = very sad looking plant. The sage on he other hand is all good. Other than assessing the frost damage, we dug over a patch ground for planting of broad beans a little later. Suffice to say a good proportion of time was also taken tea drinking and ice bun eating.

The much more happy sage
