|Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine Records for Wednesday 08 July to Friday 10 July 2015|
Friday, 10 July 2015
The last couple of days have been a bit mixed. Wednesday was a poor day, cool, with rain on and off although it didn’t amount to much more than a couple of millimetres in all. Thursday was much better with some long sunny spells and dry.
On the plot the rainfall and milder weather has certainly got things moving. After a lean spell of the last couple of months we’ve now got plenty of crops ready for harvesting. The tricky problem is knowing what to pick first.
This was Thursday afternoon’s haul which should keep us going for a couple of days. Although I’d really like to get our leeks planted it looks like the most important job at the moment is to pick our berry crop before the fruit starts to spoil. The leeks will have to wait their turn.
At home my fleece around the cherry tree seems to have worked so far and has kept our blackbirds from raiding the cherries.
I think our cherries are ready for the taste test now!
