There's been snow lying in Edinburgh since 17th December. Here's a view of the canal on New Year's Day
But inside I've got unexpected lodgers:
They're only there by accident. When storing this year's dried beans away on 1st November I came across some broad beans I'd overlooked from last year. To see if they were viable I soaked them in water:
and they all sprouted!
The next step was to plant them into modules. I had fully intended to plant them out at the plot but they didn't make it before the big freeze.
Considering the forecast before going away at Christmas I had to take them in. Now the big chill shows no sign of ending and my pampered beans are racing away. I'm going to have a hell of a job hardening them off!
Oh, and Happy New Year one and all!
