Today is the Winter solstice 2021 in Northern Hemisphere including the UK and will be at 15:58 GMT, from today we will see our days become longer as we have more extended periods of daylight, which is a good thing as I hate the dark mornings and evening of Winter.
The solstice also marks the first day of Winter, of course, and as well as becoming longer, temperatures will also start to drop. They are already warning of snow during Christmas week in the UK.
Now is the time that a lot of Allotment holders look forward to the Spring seed catalogues that will come just after Christmas, planning what they are going to do and grow on their allotments. Me I've been planning that since the start of Autumn and I still have a way to go and some decisions to make.
