Last night, I had a two-hour blast of painting the new fence but had to stop because of the light faded. So, this afternoon, I nipped out to finish the panel I’d given up on yesterday.
Rain had been forecast but I expected the usual: a couple of drops of rain at best, with the clouds speeding away before the ground got even moderately wet. Well, the ground didn’t really get wet but it did rain whilst I was out in my finest decorating gear and it certainly made for a quicker than average lick of paint.
The latest sweetcorn I’ve sown may still benefit, though. These have poked their heads above the soil and may provide us with some extra cobs if the weather holds.
If not, at least they will be biomass for the compost bin. And they are ground cover, which may hold my cherished soil in place.
I’m glad that I’ve got the fence to occupy me, anyway, as I have a feeling this year is going to be something of a flop in the growing department!
