I've had to put my tomatoes (Roma and "Dave") out in the garden (sheltered by the house) as the green house is being dismantled (chillis are bursting out in a plastic frame) and this weather is not what I wanted to see! I'm hoping they'll be okay (I let them get used to the idea gradually) they're too big to sit in windowsils now and I can't really afford to buy a cold frame to put them in this year. I'm not sure whether I'm more worried about the cold or the rain. I keep expecting to see the pond fish disappearing down the path and the calls of the Peacock be drowned out by ducks.
That said on the 23rd May last year we had snow (South Yorkshire) so perhaps we have tricked ourselves into believe it should be glorious so soon.
Next year I wont grow garlic and we'll see what happens to the weather then! The poor devils have spent most of their life so far under water and didn't get any real proper frosts that they so love. It must be a sign!
