      Frozen North. Me too! I've still got 2 1/2 inches of ice which in some places is topped with up to a foot of snow. But today it is 34f 1c so practically a heat wave and hopefully it will help melt some of this stuff! :)

        Just about any crop you like except the most tender ones like toms and runner beans.

        + what lori mentions, Spuds, Beetroot, Leeks , so many to choose and try.

        Got any heating or heated areas in there to help start off the seeds ?




        Hmmmm...... think the last time @Nosivad in the North East of England had ice and snow like yours would probably have been during the last ice age... :biggrin:
