to look round the plot earlier in the sunshine as I’d only been there during once last week. Early yesterday morning it snowed but quickly turned to sleet then rain so I was expecting to it to be worse than it was, although it’s much too soggy to do anything.
On Thursday I was told that the horticultural society order for seed potatoes was being delayed a week or two, and that some of the varieties ordered aren’t available so alternatives have had to be chosen. Thankfully my favourite variety Charlotte wasn’t one, and the other ones we have substituted are all acceptable. I didn’t think that the potatoes I grew last year would last as long as they have but I’ll be using the last two today.
The week ahead looks unsettled with some more heavy rain but two days should see temperatures above 10 C/50 F which is welcome.
This sunflower picture was taken last August.
Take care, and have a good week!
