Is anybody else sick of waiting for the weather to improve. My greenhouse is in pieces so no point trying to fix it until the wind dies down. The ground is either sodden or frozen solid. I'm itchin to get going but can't see it happening anytime soon. I can't grow indoors on my windows etc . Is there anything else I can do

I know exactly how you feel. But don't worry - a mild, dry spell will come when we can all get started - just have patience. I just got my onion sets and the next dry day - in they go!
