The cold weather persists and does not make me want to go outside much.  But time marches on so I decided I had to do some sowing and I sorted through the seed packets, bought some multi-purpose compost and got on with it.

Now there are seed trays in the greenhouse with broad beans, red and white onions.  I decided to try onions from seed this year.

 On the floor are two buckets of leeks.

There's a peach tree (self sown) and fig tree keeping them company.  I had a look at them to see if the cold weather had done them in but I'm glad to say that there are viable buds.

However, the cold and wet weather has destroyed my home made cold frame.  The plywood has rotted and won't support the window frames anymore.  I'm in two minds as to whether it's worth making a new one. 
I started the chitting process for the spuds in the unheated conservatory.  These are the pink fir apple.

And the kestrel which are already showing sprouts.
