Sunday was dull in the morning and early afternoon with some sunshine late on.
As we approach the 21st of the month our daylight hours reach their maximum length and the sun its peak intensity. The graph to the right shows how much energy we have received from the sun over the last year rather than the number of hours of sunshine.
Our early cabbages have spent the last few months under butterfly netting in an attempt to protect them from cabbage white butterflies and its caterpillars. It’s by no means a fool proof method as these Primo cabbages are still showing caterpillar damage and will need a close inspection to remove the offenders before any more damage is done.
