No Show

After a long sunny day, Wednesday it was all change as the sun didn't manage to make an appearance at all. It was a much cooler day too with the temperature not quite making it to 20°C.

This chart of our sunshine hours for the last three days clearly shows the contrast. Monday the first day on the chart was fairly cloudy especially in the morning before the sun came out in the afternoon. Tuesday was sunny all day and then finally Wednesday with no recorded sunshine at all.

The garden and plot really do need some rain now. We've had just 3.4mm so far this month hardly enough to dampen the top of the soil let alone give our crops a good watering. The ground where I dug up our first root of early potatoes Vales Emerald didn't have any sign of moisture down to a fork’s depth.
There isn't much rain forecast although there is a possibility of some heavy showers on Saturday which would be very welcome.
