in The potting shed
north manchester some sunshine and blustery showers just put bicks on the cold frame to hold it down .
Yep that wind is increasing again. It was pleasant in the greenhouse, sowing & repotting things. I even sat out with a cuppa, protected by the open shed door.
Washing now back inside, pretty well dry, but yet another recent sharp shower sent me scurrying out to rescue the last bits. Typical April really. J.
A nice sunny day here, blue skies and white cloud with no wind.
Plastic GH is full to bursting with germinating seeds. Mooli's enjoying the cool weather, sown only last week, several rows of seedlings have come up, under glass in a raised bed. Trying three different varieties this year, going for different colours...red, white and black.
Stockton, very wet, very windy, very sunny, in around five minute cycles, very frustrating.
Ailsa Craig Tomato plants have roots outside the pot, Shirley nearly there and sweet tumbler also showing root at the base so time to set them in the large pots although I put pot and all in until they settle then plant them up.Sweet peas need nipping, beans need to be out but too cold, pepper still needs some warmth, when will we be able to get cracking I ask.
8 degrees, windy and now raining in S.Yorks. So much to do and can't get at it. So frustrating.
just had a hail storm, the second with in the hour . Looks like i will not be going in the garden now and the weather for the rest of the weekend not the best
Yes hail here at 3pm, now lovely and sunny...reminds me of that song
Hello Mother, hello Father....Allan Sherman I think.
Sun & showers & a strong wind in both NEast Derbyshire this morning & WManchester this afternoon.
Tomorrow should be better & am out all day!
So whatever Wed's weather throws at us I shall be doing something outside/inside greenhouse......... J.
Do you really want to know?! One word: lousy!
Jo, got a lot done today even though it came in quite cold this afternoon.
Stockton was mainly sunny and warm out of the easterly wind and the watering can had to come into use as the hose is frost damaged.
All fleeced up for tonight. Too cold and windy to do anything non-essential. Thursday looking better.
I'm sorry for everyone else, on the south coast we have had lovely sunshine again today.
We had a cracking day.
Didn't open the plastic GH either until I got home, I'm currently germinating stuff in there, with the heat, everything is germinating really quickly but the light and cooler evenings seem to be stopping stuff from getting leggy.
Stockton on Tees, woke to bright sunshine, opened both ends of the greenhouse to let a breeze through and everything looks very healthy.I often wonder if later sowings do not get on much better than the early ones. Double figures temp so no complaints.
Raining in Dordogne. But needed after last weeks 25°
Another sundress day here on south coast.
Bev, you are not the only one although wearing a sundress in my case may give the neighbours the wrong idea.I have a suntrap spot at the bottom of the garden and sat awhile enjoying the sun with Sonny the Jack Russel Corgi at my feet, very relaxing apart from seeing all the jobs that need doing.
LOL. Frank.Picturing you in a sun dress has brightened up my day
Bright and sunny here. It was blue skies and white cloud at 6.30pm. The GH plants had a water. Lots of stuff beginning to germinate in the plastic GH and the allotmenteers are beginning to wake up, it was a hive of activity out there this evening.
We actually reached 16C yesterday! Wasnt able to garden, but intend to do so today.
Bright sun from the word go so far. Have opened up the coldframes & fed the birds. Lots to do out there & in greenhouse if the predicted showers arrive. J.
yesterday turned out to be a scorcher it ws reading 31 in my greenhouse no wind blue skies and sunshine.. and today looks like going to be the same..
really need some rain down here.. my 6 waterbutts are now very low and only another few days of watering in them. we have not had rain for weeks and weeks now.. acutally dont think we have had any since start of the month.
