Lockdown Day 51 - Frost tonight again!

Looking at the forecast tonight, this will be the coldest night of the week with temperatures almost down to freezing point - yes - in May!!

So, I have been up to the allotment to protect anything I think will be at risk. The potatoes had a good earth up yesterday, and the lemon tree is already protected, as are the blueberries, and now I have put some plastic over the strawberries, the grape vine, the peas and beans and the seedlings in the brassica plot.

I have had to weight it all down with sticks as it is still quite windy right now. I will be back up there in the morning to see whether this has all worked!
