After Wet and Windy - Gales

After the wet and windy weather on Sunday we just had even windier weather on Monday but without the rain. Temperature wise it wasn't a bad day as the temperature rose to 20.6°C in the afternoon and we had some long sunny spells.
The strongest winds were reserved for the afternoon with a record gust speed for any summer month of 27 mph. It’s already the windiest August of the four I have records for.

We’re planning a trip down to the plot this afternoon to see what damage the wind has done. Our cardoons are unlikely to have survived but I'm hoping that our runner beans and sweetcorn will be still standing.
Last year as this photo shows our cardoon was still standing at the beginning of September but I'm betting that won’t be the case this year.
