Last night, I came home to a greenhouse that was on its last legs. We were in the middle of a thunderstorm and the water had started to pool in the roof. The weight of this had then snapped the weakened joints (due to high winds earlier in the year) where the sides met the roof.
This morning, I had once last go at salvaging the greenhouse, putting masking tape over the joints to hold them up….
but alas while we were out this afternoon the wind started up again and I came home to a cover-less greenhouse.
However, we are now in the middle of another thunderstorm and this time the rain will be watering my parched greenhouse plants a treat. Of course, we won’t be getting heavy downpours every day, I hope. But all things being equal, the plants probably won’t dry out quite so rapidly now, either.
As for the plants that were outside, anyway, the courgette has gone from having no discernible fruit on Friday morning to two of a reasonable size yesterday evening (Saturday). A female pumpkin flower also opened this morning, so I was out there with my paintbrush to help nature along.
So, all in all, things appear to be looking up😊.
