Shame it’s so wet

Wednesday was another pretty pleasant day with a reasonably amount of sunshine. Just after lunchtime we had a heavy shower. In the afternoon there were some dark clouds around but we missed any more rain.

On the plot I dug up some Sarpo Mira potatoes but the ground was just too wet and it was impossible to distinguish potatoes from soil. I settled for just collecting some lettuce, spring onions and a cucumber for our salad. The afternoon rain was still in evidence on the lettuce leaves.

I took this photo of a lone strawberry thinking it might make a good blog picture. It was only on closer inspection I spotted the slug, looking for its next meal, crawling around the side of the strawberry. The little bit of soil visible indicates just how wet the ground has become.
