Stockton, wall to wall sunshine, sorted the tomato's yesterday, those side shoots creep up while you are not watching, topped them up with compost and have some tomato's on the Ailsa Craig with plenty of blossom on all.The weeds got a good seeing to, this weather suits them too well but I did get a sit down and look round, a mistake as you see all the things that need doing.
35°C in the shade expected by lunchtime, 32 right now (10am) (wipe sweaty brow smiley!).
Very p;easnt evening, sitting outside with glass of something. Very heavy rain overnight and plants seem to have dobled in size whilst I have been out.
Norfolk: Been quite warm even to being pretty muggy for most of day.
Been weeding in very dry earth - loads of couch and ground elder
Threatened rain but none came, so had to water everything - that'll do it !
Warm, humid, a day for enjoying the garden... maybe a gentle potter around but definitely no lifting.
warm sunny and humid.. not a breath of air wanywhere..
its gonna be hot one
Stockton is sunshine all the way, looking after next doors garden this week everything in pots so having to keep up with the watering as they dry out fast.I will find time to sit contemplate my naval and enjoy the sun though.
Humid this morning then turned out bright hot sunshine this afternoon
A scorcher day.
I registered for the Lancashire cycle challenge on Monday but it was far to hot go out this evening so reorganised the GH, took out some shelving and repositioned all the pots. Finished planting up the bed with peppers (tall), cues and a variety of beans called yard long noodles, best grown in a GH, we shall see... .
Norfolk: too hot and airless to work until evening. Then cool enough to dig and rake some manure into my raised beds ready for late showings of beans and salad.
Very satisfying seeing the dried, spent soil becoming darker and richer again.
Very wet at the moment,more forecast for next few days
But the garden needs it even if I don,t.
Rained most of the day here in the NW.
Cut some sweet pea and foxglove to bring indoors this afternoon, I didn't expect foxglove to grow so tall, some are over 5ft and bee's are drawn to them like a magnet. I've lots of bee's in the garden but no ladybirds.
Very very very W..........indy.
Strong and cool wind. Rained again overnight..had enough now!
Norfolk: Blustery but not cold - so washing went out - so it rained!
Then washing got wet then dried again. Presently sun is out but clouds still threaten. About to tempt them by doing some gardening.
Nottingham. Wet, Wet, Wet.
Wet and windy...
north manchester wet and windy
Just back in from watching son at the bowls they got beat and on the way in looking at my front garden it's had a right battering from the wind heads off the digitalis,geraniums,incarvillea snowdrop and hanging baskets going round like the waltzer's. Dinner now then up to the bowling club to play my championship game if i won and son wins tonight we play each other in the next round that will be good never played each other in singles yet bring it on i tell him but he is really good
A funny sort of day. A bit windy but not that much. Was hot enough earlier for me to lie in garden enjoying it.Every now and again clouds came over but still not cold.
