Monday it rained for much of the day but Tuesday was okay so I spent a while deadheading the rose Pretty Lady.
I then picked some raspberries and strawberries.
Yesterday was dull and drizzly until well into the afternoon, then overnight there was a lot of heavy rain. Earlier this morning I went and voted in today’s referendum. Once I’d done so I crossed the road and headed across the Newton Park West open space, which as you can see was rather watery.
It was the same on the allotment site which was as bad as I’ve ever seen it with standing water everywhere including plots which have never suffered before. Compared to some mine wasn’t too badly affected, but certainly the worst yet, and this was the grass path at the bottom of the plot.
There’s more heavy showers and rain forecast for late this afternoon and evening which will only make matters worse. At this rate I’ll be lucky to harvest even a few edible vegetables this year.
Have a good weekend!
