Where's the rain gone

Thursday was probably a typical July day. Warm, with a reasonable amount of sunshine and no rain today.

On the plot I dug up our crop of Red Duke of York potatoes. As you can see they looked ready to be lifted.

From 02 Weather 2010
I was surprised at how dry the ground was. It’s just had twice the amount of rain it should have for July but the soil remains very dry. I suspect it’s reduced the weight of the potato crop. On the other hand absolutely no slug damage so perhaps it’s swings and roundabouts concerning the crop weight.

As mentioned earlier this week details of our bee motel are now posted on our website.
