Shady trees

Thursday had plenty of sunshine and was considerably milder than Wednesday tempting us down to the plot to do a bit more tidying up.

From 03 Weather 2010
To one side of our allotments is a row of extremely tall conifer trees which are already casting shade on part of the plot. Our parsnips were in the shade by mid afternoon. The shady part is much slower to warm up and takes much longer to dry out due to the shade cast by these trees.
