Another 11.4mm of rain saw us past our highest monthly rainfall figure and it was also another cold day with strong winds for good measure.
The gardening season doesn't seem to have started. We’ve hardly visited the plot and I suspect it’s going to take a few dry days to get the soil into anything like a workable condition. It’s been a cold month as well as wet with the average temperature this month colder than March. March averaged 8.7°C and April only 6.9°C.
With the cool temperatures it’s also been a struggle to grow plants in the cold greenhouse especially the more tender plants like tomatoes and peppers. These dahlia seedlings have recently been pricked out which has meant moving them from the luxurious warmth of the indoor grow light to the much cooler conditions in our cold greenhouse.
