Mildest day but gales return

Wednesday became our mildest day of the month with an average temperature of 10.1°C. I made a trip down the plot, badly timed as it started to drizzle as soon as I arrived.

By late evening and into the early hours of Thursday morning gale force winds were back with us again.

I’d gone down to the plot to erect some posts to provide some support for our raspberry canes. I wasn’t going to let the drizzle put me off. This should have been done last spring but the ground was so hard and dry it was impossible to hammer any posts in without splitting them. After some wet winter days that’s not the case any more. Anyone following Sue’s garlic postings will know that they appear to be trying to grow in mud. I thought it would be a good opportunity to get the posts in whilst the ground is soft.
The posts went in a treat so now all that’s left to do is put up some wires and tie in this years raspberry canes.
