Our celery is still Ok inside the outer stems

We call that the "middle".  :tongue2:

Sorry, not au fait with all the technical terminology, DD  :lol:

That's nothing. I'm going to harvest tomorrow no else but celery hearts.

Everything is way ahead. I saw wild strawberries in flower last week!

Talking to our farmer neighbour the other day and he told me weed growth starts at about 4C and grass at 7C. The fields are as lush and green as in April and we are at about 600ft.

The weather we're forecast to get will peg everything back:

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

The vinca flowers are well frosted, but still look happy.

Just slow-tailed it out to the greenhouse to rescue my two bulbs of Solent Wight garlic which I hadn't gotten around to planting yet and last years lettuce and spinach are still going strong - who'da thunk?  :lol:
