|Temperature and Sunshine Records for 06 to 10 August 2015|
Tuesday, 11 August 2015
The last few days have been good with the temperature slightly above average both by day and by night. We’ve avoided any windy weather and apart from a few light showers on Monday any wet weather.
The warmer brighter weather might have helped to get some of our tomatoes into ripening mode. They’ve been very reluctant to to change colour this year remaining stubbornly green.
We’ve pottered around in the garden, done a little bit of harvesting on the plot and had a couple of days out or rather an afternoon at RSPB Fairburn Ings and a day trip into the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
In the higher parts of the Dales on Sunday the clouds covered the tops of the peaks and there were a few showers about but in the valleys the weather was brighter and warmer.
We had a walk to the lower, middle and upper falls at Aysgarth on the river Ure in Wensleydale. I’m sure the falls would look far more spectacular after a spell of wet weather.
Our forecast is for some rain late on Thursday or into Friday this week but I think our newly planted brassicas and peas will be wanting a drink to keep them happy until then.
