What's the weather like in your area?

Started out rainy today in the Midlands so took the kids to school so they didn't get wet on their 3 mile cycle.  Brightened up about midday and we have a lovely sunny evening.  I think my chickens are fed up of having muddy feet though.  Three hens gone broody.

Sunny yesterday morning followed by cloud, seems to be the same here in the Midlands again today.  French Beans are not enjoying this weather. Luckily(?) I tried lots of old seed packets and am awash with brassicas so planting them everywhere as they enjoy the rain.  What I will do with a glut of kale and cabbage has yet to be thought about, but Hugh Fearnley Whittenstal does have a recipe for kale pizza!  The greenhouse is doing OK though, glad I bought a large one as I am growing not only the usual suspects but fennel. lettuce and beetroot inside too.

Horsetail weeds

Hi Chris,

If you have damp boggy shade, try growing Wasabi as suggested by James Wong. Depending on how you wish to use the garden, you could put decking boardwalks in and plants bog plants, making a feature of it's natural environment.  It would make for a different and interesting garden.  I too have horsetail and constant digging in the veg patch deters it but the front garden is overrun.  I plan to grow a ground cover of Alcemellia Mollis as it has such thick root balls, to hopefully fend it off.
