Just a Drop

We had our first measurable rainfall of the month on Thursday. It wasn't much amounting to only 0.6mm.

The rain started as we arrived at the plot so we were forced to have a coffee sitting in our shed for 30 minutes until the rain passed. It wasn't enough to even dampen the top of the soil and we weren't stopped from getting our courgettes and cabbages planted out.
We planted out cabbages Hispi and Huzaro which is a red cabbage. We're growing three varieties of courgettes this year Jemmer, Tondo Chiaro di Nizza, and Zucchini.

I’m trying to keep an updated list of all our sowings and planting here but it’s quite a task this month with sowing, pricking out and planting out in the plot going on most days.

  1. We only had a few showers yesterday, and they didn't last long at all, just a few five minute bursts. Our water butts at the allotment are just about empty now and we're already having to take water with us to the plot as we don't have a water supply there. There'll be hosepipe bans before we know it at this rate.
