Back to sunny and breezy

On Tuesday it back to sunny breezy weather. Yesterday's rain hadn't penetrated far into the soil and the surface was dry once again. With no more rain on the horizon we decided to start transplanting our brassicas and courgettes into their final positions on the plot from our packed cold frame and greenhouse.
Late summer and winter brassicas planted out
The soil is extremely dry and each young brassica planting hole was filled with water before planting. These plants wouldn't have survived many more days in their restricted containers so we felt there best chance was to be planted out.
Courgettes Jemmer,  All Green Bush and Zucchini
These 3 courgettes were also planted out using much the same technique as the brassicas. Besides water each planting hole was enriched with some home made compost.
