Frost this morning. I went out to pick some lettuce for lunch and it was frozen solid. I can’t remember having a frost this late here before.
Wondering: I have no idea how much frost I have had this winter, as I have been leaving in the morning while it is still dark. I’m so glad the days are a bit longer now, so I have a better idea of what is going on.
Eating: lettuce, silverbeet, miner’s lettuce, chickweed, puha. Not a lot really; I’m still buying vegetables but at least I’ve got salad.
Tidying: on the weekend I pulled out some weeds and old cabbage that was finally starting to bolt. I can’t complain, since I have had several heads off each plant.
Flowering: I’ve got half a dozen daffodils now. Big happy yellow ones, my absolute favourite. I love daffodils. They’re like a smile on a stalk.
