Re: Late Spring Bits and Bobs.

The sky seems to have sprung a leak. Perhaps I should have stuck at it last evening and dug the last few trenches of the bed where I have been pulling out the late brassicas to make way for dahlias, chrysants and gourds.

Re: Late Spring Bits and Bobs.

Just past 42mm and still going, cool and windy with it. Act of defiance today, planted 10 tomatoes in the polytunnel, needed ear defenders at times.

Re: Rain gauge

I think so - found this quote Can you use super glue outside? Super glue creates an incredibly strong adhesive bond. Because of cyanoacrylate glue's unique properties, the bond is nearly unbreakable. It's so powerful, it can hold outdoor materials together, such as broken or cracked eavestroughs, th...

Re: Early Spring Bits and Bobs

I'm getting a very negative feeling about this Spring, -2.3°C again last night with all the plum family in full blossom. Forecast had it positive last night but luckily I covered the potatoes anyway, haven't been to check yet if it got into the tunnel and the cold greenhouse.

Re: Early Spring Bits and Bobs

Looks like another beautiful day but the forecast looks grey and cool for a week so won't be packing up the fleece I'm using every night in the cold greenhouse and tunnel anyti...

Congratulations. I confess I'm not a pot washer, if they are dry I reckon they wipe clean well enough.

A cuckoo would be just that to turn up here, I'd recommend going back to Africa, snow and below minus five overnight, snowing again now.
