Did I say no damage done? Was planting out some hardy stuff yesterday & realised that one of our tv ariels is hanging loose. That explains the 'hollow' banging sounds I kept hearing causing me to keep going out to check on a coldframe lid! It's obviously a redundant one though as no problems with tv noticed- apart from the longstanding infuriating trick of trying to 'tape' things from Welsh channels which have rotten reception!
Today bang on 11am, as per forecast-wow, it began to rain & has been constant since. Managed to do quite a bit of potting on/pricking out in the greenhouse though.
The courgettes & beans are now too big for windowsills inside the house, so they are cloched in the greenhouse.
Things in the 2 coldframes still cant be risked outside completely so a real 'traffic jam' still around here. J.
