Hi a balmy 10c here in between rain showers intermittent frost towards morning
Don't brag, Derek!
why not you Guys keep mentioning thous dirty four letter words R--n S--w
Wet and windy here.
I've been sowing seeds in the kitchen it's been so cold outsideA tab bit disappointed with germination. Twelve chilli Apache seeds sown and only three have come up, sadly going leggy whilst I wait for the others to show. Cayenne just two seeds showing, peppers are no better...
7 degrees and sunny here today but 7 degrees and rain tomorrow .
Have got my seeds in the conservatory and they are doing well . Made a makeshift "shade" from an old net curtain which does the job perfectly!
- 4° and sunny at 8am. Greenhouse thermometer said it had been to -5°, but it's on the bottom bench and the heater and electric propogaters are on the top bench. The 19 germinated tomatoes look OK though.
More snow and jolly cold. Fed up.
Wet & increasingly windy here in Manchester. About 6-7C out there now.
If tomorrow is dry(er) I may, then may not, done wellies & waterproof gloves to finish cutting back the dead herbaceous at daughter's house. We're not totally sure yet what surprises await her, but time will tell. J.
The sun has appeared occasionaly today. The frogs have covered the pond in frogspawn so it is warm enough for something.
snow due overnight and tomorrow....
Yes I'm just watchin gthe forecast on the BBC and it's not looking very good for the whole of the country, heavy rain and snow oh and now thunder ho hum !
Dull, wet and windy here.
Not sown any toms yet, there hasn't been any room in the propagator. I've taken the cover of the chillies though so should have some room in a couple of days. Seedlings on the window ledge are looking OK.
Kinda dull and damp this morning with a light sea fret type rain, had very heavy rain through the night so the garden is water logged again, slight breeze and at 6.1c not to bad temperature wise I do see a break in the clouds so maybe just maybe the sun will get through.
Not gardening weather in Stockton but come next weekend the heated sandbox will be fired up and the Tomato seed will go in plus the first pots of sweet peas.I do not mess with them they go in deep pots out of the packet and left to set and grow on, then drop them out of the pot into position and sow some extra seeds around for a longer flowering time. I do not go with all the mystique for growing sweet peas.
