The British weather .....

never ceases to amaze me, no wonder we spend all our time talking about it! A week ago on Sunday we were shivering in our winter woollies with temperatures of about 13c. This Sunday just gone, it was on with the sunscreen and seek out a bit of shade, as the temperature reached 26c!

The really cold May means that plants on the allotment seem to be about a month behind. The rocket potatoes, which should take about 10 weeks from planting to harvest are nowhere near ready. However, the recent hot weather means everything is growing and the plot is changing almost daily. These photos were taken a few days ago, but already things have grown!
