Over the past few weeks we've had every type of weather imaginable; other than snow.
We've had a couple of nights of -2 C frosts, hot sunshiny afternoons, strangely warm winds, rain, drought, clear skies, cloudy skies; you name it, we've had it.
Having to cope with all that have been my newly planted tender vegetables, and I worried. The poor things were forced, for a while, to live beneath plastic pots to ward off the frosts, but I'm pleased to say they all survived.
Not so lucky were my table grapes. I only have a few eating grape vines, and they were looking really good; now they are totally frosted and it'll be Autumn 2018 before we have another chance of home grown grapes.
Otherwise the tips of the Fig trees were all nipped, but they will produce fruit I'm sure; they always do!
This time of year is always precarious, false hopes make us unwary. It pays to be vigilant in April/May. It should settle down now.
