Wetter than forecast

Postby Len Wood » 2014 Jul 07, 18:43

4.1 mm of rain today.
Rather more showers than forecast and sun in short supply.

Max 17.5 C
Min 11.6C

Still, at least it has saved me watering in the garden.
Sweet peas and soft fruit doing very well this year.

After a dry, warm and fairly sunny weekend, today started sunny but it clouded over and one heavy but short downpour this afternoon produced a much needed 5.0 mm.

Maximum only 19.2°C; first sub-20°C this month.

Len, my soft fruits (assuming you mean strawberries, cherries, rasperries etc) are now over. The first of this year's tomatoes (outdoor) are now ready to pick and I've been picking cucumbers for quite a while now. Should get a good crop of figs this year, they'll be ready in another week or two. Chillies and aubergines seem to be the big success story of this year so far. I planted them outside in late May and they've done really well and now have fruits ripening.
