We know many of you are keen on gardening, so here's your latest plot: dug over, weed free and ready to sow the seeds of new ideas...
Never known this, here on the South Coast haven't seen rain for at least two months.Travelling West farmers are harvesting stunted crops already. Scarey or what?The price of basic foods will go through the roof this Autumn I feel. Anyone else feel the same ?
We've had a few outbreaks of rain recently in Wales but not enough to soak the ground. I think the price of food will rise because crops have not materialised. Farmers have already said the price of hay etc to feed their animals has risen already so there's bound to be a knock on effect.
It has rained solidly for 18 hours now. Finally!
At last!! Luckily not a downpour but steady drizzle which hopefully will sink in rather than drain off.Will plant out stuff still in pots this evening - oh joy !
Saturday night was very peculiar had spectacular thunder and lightening but no rain then yesterday, have been suffering with lack of rain like sandra - here, it rained ALL day and most of sunday night - all my butts are full to the brim from being bone dry for the last 3 weeks, had good opportunities to clean the sediment from the butts.everything has perked up no end, even the lawn has a tinge of green to it - but weirdly the mud under the grass is still cracked, my veggies outside ones do look a bit sorry for themselves though and very very wind swept.
Although it has been promised since Saturday evening....everything here dry as a stick. Luckily we still have water in the well for the pots.The farmer has been muck spreading this morning and turned it in straight away, which caused a massive dust cloud. Luckily the wind was blowing it all away from our cottage. One draw back though, it has brought the flies with it ! So Out comes the "Fly Bat", and I am getting enough practice that I think I will be able on take on Andy Murray very soon !!
at this rate you would win queens wimbledon and all the other major cups against murray
We had rain yesterday, storms have been around for two days, then yesterday afternoon it poured down .After an hour went out into the garden, the ground was still dry, only difference, is the weeds are about a foot taller
We had rain last night so things looking fresher this morning. More showers forecast for later in the day. We could do with it.
