          Too cold in the garden, so sat in the kitchen, re-potted some things I had in the propagator.

          Then I sowed some Anaheim chillies.

          That was enough for today.

              Getting deep and heavy now.
              It's the weight of the snow that's the problem now it bending all the trees and the 1 palm having to go out and shake the leaves :doh:
              Commitment or stupidity or what:scratch: :heehee:

                    I always use a very long handled broom to do that :blue thumb: I don't get covered in snow that way. :)

                          After all the eating, drinking and enforced 'socialising' of the past few days, it was great to spend a couple of hours on a bright, cold afternoon in the garden, doing a bit of general weeding, tidying up and pottering along one of the borders.

                          Back to work tomorrow. :yes:
