Well said, my dear daughter!
My newly planted courgettes and beans do not like the current climatic goings-on one bit. The netting round the blueberries keeps coming undone and the bean poles are falling in the wind.
Inside, cauliflower seedlings are dying due to lack of light on the stand by the back door. I had hoped by now to have them all on the windowsills, having planted out the tomatoes. Instead everything remains in situ, though at least some of the stronger tomato plants are getting hardened off outside during the day.
To use a cliche, however, every cloud has a silver lining. In this case, plants that prefer cooler weather are romping away. This includes lettuce, cabbage and carrots. And the broad beans are turning from flower into pods.
It doesn’t look like the greenhouse will be getting its new cover on any time soon, which means the only red tomatoes I get could be from the plant indoors. However, the plus in this is that I might have plenty of green ones for green tomato jam, which I discovered last autumn.
And tomorrow is another day. Sixteen degrees and sunny is moving in the right direction 🙂
