Watercress Survives Its First Frost

Tuesday was the classic day where the forecast is for a band of rain to sweep through with colder weather following on behind it. Yesterday's temperature and rainfall chart shows the details.
Temperature and Rainfall Records for 07 November 2017
The day's rainfall didn't amount to much with just 2.0mm or 0.08in.

Our watercress growing in the pond has survived the first frost of autumn providing us with some greenery for lunchtime sandwiches on Tuesday.
It wasn't a very sharp frost so there will be more severe tests to come as winter progresses.
