Weather changes
« on: June 22, 2019, 10:33 »
We are having a strange pattern of weather this year. Feb and March were great very stable weather but since then wild swings in temperature and rain.  The last week we had four days of really good warm sunny weather then Thursday and Friday the temp dropped 15 degrees and it rained all day both day. Next week we are getting up to 37C by Thursday then over the next few days dropping back to about 25C with scattered showers.
The plants in my plot don't know what the hell is going on, I have struggles to get a decent row of beans to germinate because of the wild swings in temperature and heavy rains but will try to get some in again next week as we are off for the weekend. I can normally in mid May sow a row of beans and have them all germinated in four days... not this year :(

Jambop, we are normally in the Dordogne for summer, UK this year and watering no issue, or germinating, but whether we get enough heat to ripen tomatoes, chillies etc will be a different matter!

Some types of weather patterns suit some plants and not others. I guess you just have to take it and see what happens.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

Our sweet corn is only 2 ft high, and starting to top out...

Fed them furiously with Sulphate of Ammonia, as I'm sure they need some nitrogen...

Never seen that before!
