Saturday, 6 June 2015
Friday became our warmest day of the year as early in the afternoon the temperature reached 24.0°C (75.2°F). By mid afternoon the weather was already changing as the clear blue skies of the morning clouded over and a stiff coolish breeze picked up. I suppose we have to be thankful for a day and a half of decent weather.
The wind from last week has already damaged some of the main stems to one of our cardoons. It’s not supposed to be windy in June!
On the plot Sue planted out our squash, pumpkin and courgette plants. By the time we left they already had a bit of a lean on due to the strong breeze. It felt like we might be planting them out a bit early but then again it is June so if they can’t safely be planted out now I don’t know when.
The forecast for the next few days is not that impressive for early June. We might get some sunshine but the temperatures are fairly disappointing.
