Four Seasons in One Day

Four Seasons in One Day
Posted on 07/04/08 | Posted by The Fat Gardener

Working in the garden at this time of year is a full time job – I am often told off by other members of the Quality Garden Tools team for disappearing during the day to do one of many ‘little jobs’ that are needed in April. This busy time in my own garden coincides with the busy period in everyone else’s so Quality Garden Tools is especially hectic and I have to rely on weekend gardening more than ever.

I had planned to mulch and compost some hedge cuttings yesterday (6th April), but woke to find 3 inches of snow covering the garden! I waited patiently for things to change and by lunchtime they had – sadly only to driving rain and wind. After a fortifying Sunday lunch and some time reading the weekend papers I found that by 3pm all the snow had melted and the sun was out (and warm). With another busy week ahead I decided to be brave and managed to shred and compost most of the hedge cuttings after all.

It was only to be expected that we would have a frost last night, but as I speak the sun is out again! Anyone able to predict the weather at the moment would have had no problem finding the winner in The Grand National – enjoy your winnings!
