It snowed – again!

Snow on Scilly is a rare event. The last I can remember before this year was 2009. But now it’s snowed twice within three weeks! Apparently an old boy in his 80’s, who’s lived here all his life, has said he can never remember two lots of snow in one winter. Climate change?


Anyway, for the sheer joy of Scilly in the snow here are some photos from this morning of snow and sunshine. By this afternoon it had nearly all gone…

Snow on caulis isn’t a common problem we have selling on the veg stall!

Settling on elm trees, which should be ready to burst in to leaf in a week or two…

The strange effect of snow slipping off a polytunnel

A downside of having guttering on tunnels – that took a lot of work getting the snow out!

Fields at Lawrences looking pretty

Believe it or not there are spuds under there. Fortunately none have shot up above ground level yet…

I started Scilly Organics in 2003, and it was the first certified organic farm on the Islands. We continue to supply the highest quality fruit and vegetables, available fresh on our stall and at certain eateries on Scilly.
