Well here we are again at the start of another year, the warmest New Year on record. I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year and didn’t put on too many unwanted pounds over the festive season. Still, even if you did, it is a good excuse to get out into the garden over the coming weeks as the weather begins to warm up and start preparing for the growing season. I guess I am not the only one, but as soon as January arrives I am eager to start doing something, whether sowing seeds on a warm windowsill or propagator or preparing the allotment ready for planting at the earliest opportunity. Even with this I still run out of time come May/June when everything should be in and growing.
Below is an excerpt of Mr Middleton's New Year musing back in 1935 :
