Lots of everything!

What a day, gales, sun and plenty of rain. During the day there was a reasonable amount of sunshine but this was accompanied by gale force winds which gradually eased in the middle of the afternoon. The runner beans on the plot took a real battering from the wind.

I planted out my Dobies brassica collection. The ground was really dry so I took extra care to fill the planting holes with water and then water the plants in well. Covering with netting to protect from birds and insects was great fun in the wind. The completed job is shown below.

Then of course in the evening it begins to rain and continues through most of the night and by morning we had received 34mm of rain, over half September’s expected rainfall.
