Edging Towards My Wettest September

It's the last day of the month and if we get any reasonable amount of rainfall this September is going to be the wettest since 2010 when I started keeping records.
Temperature & Rainfall Records for September 2017 (to 18:01 on 29 September)
The wettest September I've recorded was in 2014 when we had 79.2mm (3.12in) of rainfall so as you can see from this months chart shown above we're up to 74.8mm (2.94in). There's certainly some rainfall forecast for Saturday, the last day of the month so we may beat that 2014 record.

As we haven't been down to the plot since Tuesday and at the moment we haven't got any visits planned. On Thursday during a spell of rather nice autumnal weather I made a short video showing inside our home greenhouse and summerhouse.


  1. Enjoyed the video. Everything you grow in the greenhouse I grow outside -- geranium, begonia, eggplant, peppers, tomato. I should say -- tomahto -- I like hearing your accents, yours and Sue's -- not at all like London or Oxford with which I am familiar. What you grow outside i cannot grow. What is the opposite of a greenhouse? a cold house?

    1. We can manage to grow tomatoes outside Jane and geraniums will survive outside through winter if winter isn’t too cold and the roots are kept dry. A matter of luck if they get through winter. Hope you didn’t find our accents too difficult to understand. I’m not sure what the opposite of a greenhouse is but as our greenhouse isn’t heated at all through winter it can certainly be a cold house.

  2. Beautiful video! Hope the rainfall of 2017 can beat the 2014 record! ;)

    1. Glad you enjoyed the video.

      This September's rainfall fell just short of the record but I'm not sure you notice any difference in a few millimetres of rainfall over 31 days.
