Tipping it down here, scuppering my plans to have a bonfire at the plot. Judging for the local allotment awards is coming up soon and I've still got a lot of tidying to do.

Very dull and misty start, and just had a downpour of 7mm in half an hour, which will be gratefully received by the garden but not good news for today's plans (hedge trimming - a job I hate but am now at the limbo dancing along the side paths stage, which is not good news at my age!  :wacko:)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Warm enough for a T shirt but cloudy enough to make the polytunnel inhabitable :)

Mainly cloudy but patches of lovely sunshine. Wondering if I should buy some greenhouse shading.. if I do then we're bound to have rain for the rest of the year... if I don't the toms will be cooked on the vine.

Has been a lovely sunny day here in Dartmouth, a trip to the beach at Blackpool sands proved too hot for hubby & I. So we retreated to the cool of our holiday house. Itís now clouded over & cooled down & is forecast light showers

Grey and feeling quite cool, 12C with a NE breeze - after the last few days, that's a bit of a shock to the system; for the plants too I should think  ???

Oooh! We've had no rain for yonks, the ground is dry as a bone, and it's also jolly hot but there is a little cooling breeze today.

Storm Hector has brought damaging winds but none of the promised rain. Lawns are looking really parched, made worse by all the leaf-litter blown off the trees

We had a bit of rain last night but the winds were far stronger than expected. Really not a happy chappy today, the mini polytunnel flew about 50 yards, new brassica cage damaged by it and the wall damaged as well. I was ready to put the place on the market this morning.

Low of 13C in the greenhouse and 15C now, cloudy and it's been spitting on and off for the last half hour. We badly need rain, so wish it would just get on with it  ::)

Chilly and drizzle. Could do with a good downpour for the ground but I suppose we have to take what we're given.

Bit drizzly here in our holiday cottage in Norfolk - enough to make planning a day out tricky, but not enough to do any good (there's a huge field of broad beans just down the road from here that look as if they could do with a drink.) More problematic weather on the way after tomorrow (sunny but cold - weird!)
