Cold Mornings

After a dull start to Thursday the sun returned for Thursday afternoon. Although the last few days have been very pleasant through the day we've still had a couple of cold nights with the temperature falling to around 6°C which isn't particularly good for those more tender plants.

Early Tuesday morning and again overnight Thursday into Friday it was cold. At least this is only for a short time as the early morning sun quickly lifts the temperature.

Our mint bed on the plot is in need of renovation and I think the whole bed will need to be cleared to give us a fresh start. We've bought a few new mint plants and planted these up in a large pot at home.
Mint potted up never seems to have done too well for us and mint just planted out on the allotment does just the opposite. It takes over growing into the paths and becoming uncontrollable. Hence the need to renovate the bed on the plot. It will be interesting to see how our mint performs in this giant sized planter.
