Following last weekend’s very wet and windy weather I went to the allotments on Tuesday morning to look round to see if all was okay. Thankfully my plot was, but several others are badly waterlogged. A couple of the greenhouses had lost some glass and various plastic items had got blown all over the place.
There was more rain late Tuesday afternoon and early evening making it all even more soggy. Thankfully the forecast is for calmer, drier and sunnier weather through to at least mid next week by which time I hope to have resumed planting and sowing.
Not surprisingly the yellow daffodils took a battering and are now past their best but these white ones in a container are looking good, as is the blackthorn blossom.
At home I’ve started sowing seeds in pots and trays. So far I’ve sown tomatoes, sunflowers and cosmos with lots more to do. I’ll go into more detail once they’ve germinated and started growing.
Have a good weekend!
