Wow! With my fingers actually aching from the cold and with our wonderful bracing sea breezes biting my ears, I did manage to plant my garlic. I have filled this onion bed now and I can let Mother Nature take her course. I have to admit I was not brave enough to stand hoeing the vegetable beds in the inclement weather, so I packed up and headed for home.
The afternoon brought a mixture of rain and hailstones and I was unable to do any more outside jobs.
