  • A sunny but breezy day.
    Temp only got up to 11degs outdoors.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

      • After a cold but mostly sunny day yesterday, we are now back to cold, wet and windy (predicted 42mph today).
        I had planted out the first half dozen tomato plants in the G/H about a week ago but am holding off on the rest just in case.
        If you believe the BBC, their forecasting shows no frosts for the next 2 weeks (and Metcheck seems to agree) and by then it's the 21st May so maybe no more frosts this spring at all.
        Keeping my fingers crossed as by then my spuds should be above ground and I don't fancy having to go round and cover all those up.

                  • Temperature just dropped 8°C, from 13°C to 5°C, in ten minutes. Brrr!

                    To be fair, it was under a hail shower.
                    I live in a part of the UK with very mild winters. Please take this into account before thinking "if he is sowing those now...."
