Holy Moly it was hot down the allotment this afternoon! The car read 28/82 phew! Even so I got all my red onions in and a tree that my neighbours gave me the other day. The label says that it’s an Apricot tree, but last year it produced Apples. I think it’s a bit confused. The sky is very grey at the moment and the thunder is rumbling, please let’s have some rain. Knowing us it’ll miss us. The soil needs a good water as it’s getting so hard. All we need is a heavy down pour to wet the soil and a thunder storm to clear the air.

    Let’s see, If you have lots and lots of people dressed up in their “Easter Bonnet” with the expectation of going to church and perhaps a family Easter Egg Hunt… Oh, Yes, it is likely to rain. No Worries 🙂

  2. Yes, I agree about an organised event bringing the rain – it’s an Easter Scarecrow Hunt round our way, and the weather’s been perfect. As far as the allotment is concerned, I’m just glad I haven’t transplanted my mangetout yet otherwise I’d have to make a lot of watering trips to keep them happy. I’ve just got the fairly established drought resistant things in at the moment – the potatoes, onions, leeks, parsley, rhubarb, sage, mint etc…so, here’s hoping for a bit of rain!

    Hello Claire

    I think I have your rain in Queens NY lol it seems to rain here almost everyday which make it hard to get out and work in mud, i hope we get at least 1 week with no rain so the soil could dry out a bit. I hope you and family are doing well, i hope to see some videos soon, Take care Sharen

    • Can you send some rain over here please, still not had anything to get excited about. I’ll be making more videos next week. I’m having a little tidy up at the moment, it’s a bit messy.
