No Snow Yet!

The mild few days were forecast to end by Boxing Day, as a band of rain passed through, has turned out to be correct.
Temperature Records 21-27 December 2017
As the rain arrived the temperature dropped. Rain early on Boxing day morning was on the sleety side. The forecast is for any rain to fall as snow from early on Wednesday morning through to Wednesday lunchtime. 

So far (Wednesday Morning 09:00) it appears that the snow has fallen further south once again. Here it's remained mostly dry with just a short shower falling as rain.

We'd picked some sprouts for Christmas dinner on our last visit to the plot. We had a little test of them before Christmas and they were a little disappointing. The flavour was fine but there was a large amount of waste on each sprout due to some sort of strange black substance around the base of each one.

Brussels Sprouts - Crispus
Fortunately, the remaining sprouts for Christmas day were free of this substance so I'm hoping the rest of our crop will be as good.
