Frozen solid!

The freezing weather has caused us some considerable difficulties. The ground is frozen solid and so are the vegetables. Even so, by judicious use of a crowbar and a little (grand)child labour, we have heroically managed to produce a reasonable set of boxes and bags this week.

Even the veg in the polytunnel has been frozen with my thermometer regularly recording -3 or -4 degrees overnight. If the freeze continues, we may have problems because, of course, nothing is growing and the daily freezing and thawing does the veg no good at all.
We'll do our best but we just thought we should let you know what's happening in this unprecedented freeze-up.
