Last Sunday afternoon…

and evening there was heavy rain for several hours so it wasn’t surprising to see much of the allotment site water-logged on Monday morning.  Thankfully the plot was okay, but soggy in a few places.  Since then there’s been more rain, but nowhere near as heavy.  Despite all that I spent Tuesday morning and today hoeing and weeding the three vegetable patches, mostly from the grass paths which as you see need rough cutting again once they’re dried out.

This is the view looking north towards the roadway taken this morning.  The cornus, dog rose and rose Pretty Lady are now all in full leaf, and it won’t be long before the latter starts flowering.

The next few days look like being wet and very windy at times, gusting to over 40 mph,  so it looks like any further plotting will have to wait until next week.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

    I’ll never stop saying that I love to see your entire plot! We need rain here. It has jumped to mid 80sF. No rain in sight for at least a week. We need to even out our weather patterns!

    It’s all about the weather at the moment, isn’t it. We’ve had a few thunderstorms over the last few days and heavy rain. We’ve had some days where there’s been sunny spells but they’re interspersed with showers. It’s raining heavy today again and it’s forecast for more of the same tomorrow. Your plot’s looking very tidy, and very green. At least the rain’s good for something.

    What a lovely picture of your plot. I do miss having an allotment so much at times, they are such wonderful places. All gardening on hold here as well at the moment, although I am still collecting rainwater for the wildlife pond. Just two or three inches to go now! It’s been very satisfying refilling it.

    For all the rainfall you’ve experienced, the plot is looking in good shape. You are a very plot-proud, (as opposed to house-proud) plotter. It reaps rewards. Hope your weekend is less unsettled. xxxx
