Wettest Day of the Year

The mildest day of the year on Tuesday was followed by the wettest day of the year on Wednesday with 8.8mm or 0.35in of rainfall.
Temperature & Rainfall Records 24 January 2018
We haven't visited the plot since New Year's Day when the soil conditions were on the wet side. We've had 61.2mm (2.41in) of rain over the last few weeks so the plot will need to dry up a little bit before the soil is in a workable condition.
As the garden was so wet as well I decided to do a little bit of tidying up in our home greenhouse.

We do have a few jobs to do on the plot,  such as winter washing the fruit trees and cutting back a hawthorn tree, that don't depend on the soil drying out. Maybe we'll get some suitable weather next week.

    1. It does indeed. I set my camera up to try some time lapse video just in case we got a couple of feet of the stuff. Of course we didn't get much at all and the header picture shows the snow at its worst.

  2. Your greenhouse lhas a good working feel to it. I have just recently started on taking videos for adding to my blog, good fun but will take me some time to master.

    1. Creating videos is a bit like gardening - a never ending learning curve!
