Rain all morning. Wet cats, of course, came in and wound themselves round my legs demanding to be fed!
Afternoon was better - sunshine and drying breeze. Then it all had to be spoiled with - more rain this evening
I took advantage of the dismal weather to get into the GH and have a tidy up (long overdue). Also potted on some Brussels and winter cabbage plants I bought as plugs from the GC yesterday. A dozen of each - far too many, really, but I'll find unsuspecting friends (if I've got any left - of the unsupecting variety, that is ) to give the surplus plants.
Beans are barely at the top of the supports - and I grew Moonlight this year. OK - so they're setting, but nothing to write home about with regard to taste. Better than nothing, I suppose. We have to make the best of a pretty bad year in the garden! And I, too, will freeze all that I can as a buffer against the predicted price rises to come.
