For a few days maybe but the weekend is forecast to be very cold & frosty once again! ?

We always get a little setback, I've heard it called 'winter's last fling' lol ... maybe she'll have a few last flings, and I even remember deep snow in April sometimes, but it isn't as bad as when it comes in the winter.

Well I hope it is 'winter's last fling' as I've started seed sowing & wanted to sow my tomato seeds this weekend! I see I may have to wait a few more days!

Last year the tomato seedlings suffered terribly because of the cold as once they are pricked out I have nowhere to put them but on the balcony. My harvest was one of the worst I've ever had from the balcony.

Let's hope neither you, nor any of us, see deep snow in April!

I don't start seed sowing until mid April, unless I sow Sweet Peas etc in the autumn. The spring is always cold here.

Good luck with your tomatoes :)
