Highs and Lows

The weather forecasts this week are all about the mild weather we are experiencing. At this time of year the overnight low is a key factor on the plot. We still have salad leaves and summer lettuce to harvest. The first frost will reduce lettuce to green slime. Alpine strawberries are still producing fruit but a frost will end this harvest too. The temperature on Wednesday reached 17.7°C during the day and fell to 7.7°C in the early hours of Thursday morning, the highest and lowest recordings in 9 days of recording. The night of the first frost on the plot must be close.
