Any hopes that Monday's warmth would last into Tuesday were dashed as Tuesday started dull and cold. By lunchtime the temperature had only managed to creep up to 12°C (54°F) as the clouds refused to lift.
We decided on a short visit to the plot to do a little bit of harvesting. I'm not sure how we've come to have so many Victoria plums. I remember the tree had lots of flowers but through summer I wasn't aware of how many had set fruit. Still I'm not complaining. It didn't take long to pick about 10kg (22lbs) of plums and there's still plenty left to pick. We may have to give some away to friends and neighbours.
We left the plot late afternoon by which time the temperature had managed to reach 14°C (57°F) not very impressive for early September.
