Miserable Monday

The spell of poor weather continued on Monday with the lowest daytime temperature of the month just 16.9°C. Once again a cloudy day, low temperatures and just 0.2mm of rain to show for it.

The cool weather hasn’t stopped the duckweed spreading in the pond. It’s almost taken over the entire pond surface so much of it was cleared out today to allow the fish to see daylight.
It’s early days in my slug deterrent trial but so far things are looking good. My latest lettuce sowings are just starting to germinate and along with the other seedlings in this tray they have escaped any starving snails looking for an easy meal.
I’m surprised we haven’t had more rain as I felt sure once I  placed the tray outside it would pour down and the tray would fill with water. So far just enough rain to keep the seedlings watered.
