There are plenty of springtime signs around, crocus have been and gone and now daffodils and springing out everywhere. We have got rid of the rain the last few days but winter has still got a sting in its tail with forecasts of -9 temperatures in the next week. However, the longer term forecast for March is a nice rise in temperature at the end of the second week in March. The Hygge field is still very wet and not able to get on it and work, so its planning and research time. We have however, been able to start our sweet potato’s in the window of the bedroom.
They look odd but are beginning to put down roots and hopefully the slips will appear before long as sweet potato’s need a long growing season to produce a good crop.
We have had some spectacular sunrises at the current mooring in Beaulon, and this morning was particularly impressive through light cloud.
The days are getting longer and generally brighter and with our new healthy eating regime we should be ready and fit for the busy time ahead.
