Back to sunny

Note for Sunday 21st
For the first day of spring it was a pleasant day with some long sunny periods.
Our potatoes in the cold greenhouse have survived the severe frosts of the beginning of March and are now starting to sprout.

Note for Saturday 20th
It rained for most of the day. This was our first really wet day of the month as we had not had any prolonged rain since the end of February. With the rain came a drop off in the above average temperatures of the past few days.
Note for Friday 19th
Pleasant then rain
We had another very pleasant morning with lots of sunshine. In the afternoon it clouded over again like yesterday but it remained mild. The rain arrived as forecast in the early evening.
Note for Thursday 18th
Sunny morning
A very pleasant sunny morning followed by a cloudy afternoon with spits and spots of rain. The temperature continued on its upward trend this week and very welcome it is too. It looks like it will be a warm week for March with the weeks average temperature above the expected. How quickly the weather can change.

Note for Wednesday 17th
Mostly cloudy but mild
It remained cloudy for most of the day. There were a few fleeting glimpses of hazy sunshine and it was our mildest day since 19th November. It was excellent day for digging down on the plot as the soil is in good condition for digging, breaking up into a fine tilth ready for sowing and planting next month.

Note for Tuesday 16th
Sunny periods
There were some decent sunny periods today, especially in the afternoon which lifted temperatures to their highest values of the year. It’s not just the flowers that are late developing this year. The pictures below are of the same root of rhubarb in the allotment. The top picture was taken on 1st March this year and the lower picture the same date last year.

Note for Monday 15th
Cloud and wind
It was windy today which took the edge off the temperature. It’s a while since we had a windy day. It was cloudy all day but we missed any showers that were around. I’m hoping that we’ve seen the last of the severe frosts of last week. The daffodils are coming on in leaps and bounds now.
