When I went to get animal food a couple of days ago, there were lots of new plants lurking outside just shouting at me to buy them - there were fruit bushes, plenty of primulas and some early flowering daffodils to name a few. I was good though, I resisted all of these (just) but then I noticed something lurking that I wasn't able to resist! This little packet of lettuce seedlings.
Lettuce - in February? I know. In previous years at this time we have been under snow or down to minus 12 degrees C. But this winter has been very different.
