There was enough of a thaw the other day to allow me to get my blackcurrant (Titania) planted. Fortunately the spot I'd prepared was sheltered by the bath so wasn't frozen. After planting I pruned it as per the instructions, and pushed these prunings into the ground in the hope some of them take as there's room for at least one more blackcurrant bush in that space.
Working my way down the plot, I finally finished tidying the strawberry bed and planted out half a dozen runners, chopped down the Jerusalem Artichokes, the rose bush (the only problem I have with it is that it's in the wrong place) and some brambles.

Finally I arrived at the brassica bed to sort out the netting that had collapsed under the weight of snow.

Sadly this proved easier said than done. The ground was still frozen down at this end of the plot so it proved impossible to get the sticks back into the ground to hold the netting up. Note to self do a better job with the netting before the snow this year.
And now to the seed catalogues...
