Climate change or Not ?

Recommended Posts

Climate change.

We have had no Snow, and no Frosts this year, is this due to, no cars, no planes, or fewer boats, or no body out and about, or Covid-19 ?.

Or is this just a coinsedense ?

I don't know where you live. But here on the Isle of Man we have had frosts this year.

Speaking with my gardening hat on, the "last frost date" is very important because frost can wipe out tender seedlings, but whether frost occurs, and on what date, varies a lot depending which part of the island you are in (even for such a small island).  For example, as far as I recall we had no frost in Ramsey this year, but that is probably because in town, a lot of the daytime heat is soaked up by buildings, roads and pavements and then radiated out again at night, evening out the temperature.  However, at my allotment 2 miles outside Ramsey, we had a whopper of a frost on 14th May this year, so hard that it froze the water in my hosepipe and wiped out a row of French beans which I had foolishly left uncovered.

my grandad said no beans in until May 9th. Don't know why but I've always followed that advice.
