Like much of the country, we have had three weeks of glorious weather, but tinged with a cooling breeze from the North. Today the wind shifted to the South, and it was time for me to bare the flesh! Shorts and ‘T’ Shirt with my white little pinkies in flip flops. We had a day in the garden, mulching the raspberry canes and chopping off the dead canes. We planted out all our tomatoes, courgettes and squash in the poly, as the evening temperatures are going to be much higher with the shift in wind direction. I have learnt that no matter how lovely it is in the day, if the temperature drops below 5 deg at night, the plants in the poly just stop growing.
Also the turf has been laid so the outside gardens of the properties are starting to come together.
