Normal service was resumed on Monday and after a lovely sunny morning and early afternoon, the clouds rolled in. By late afternoon they looked a bit menacing.
We decided to make a hasty retreat from the allotments rather than get wet yet again. We didn't manage three days in a row without any rain as we had a prolonged heavy shower as we arrived home.
Earlier in spring I decided to put some of our old recycling boxes to good use. They were filled with compost and then a few smaller growing tomato plants and a cucumber were used to fill three of the boxes. There was plenty of room in the plot greenhouse for the boxes to be left on the central path as I thought it would be a good idea to give the plants a bit of protection from the weather. The problem is they had completely outgrown this spot and the only option was to move them outside.
