      • 26°C here, which is hot for here.

        Opened the Velux at the top of the stairwell - Cornish air-conditioning. Big faff: have to climb on a chair, but was good to feel the warm air escaping .

        • Am starting to think that this very dry and recently hot weather is not going to help my edibles this year.

          • Yorkshire Water are advising us to save water here to avoid hosepipe bans as there has barely been any measurable rainfall since March. I am using about 100l a day on my veg, so I am having to start deciding which to sacrifice in order to save the others, particularly at the allotment. Not what I want to be doing after all the effort of growing it.

            Very little rain in the forecast, unless the hot spell next weekend ends in a big thunderstorm, which models are beginning to suggest it might. Much as I detest thunderstorms, I could definitely do with a deluge!

            One thing I have not seen much mention of is the risk of fire, as everything is tinder dry. The prospect of lightning striking vegetation when it is like this doesn't bear thinking about.

            • I did pop up to allotment early this morning and stuff was actually wilting! Was watered well yesterday, hoping it will be ok, here in Kent, we keep getting’hot weather’ warnings! This will also affect germination I guess!
