Oh my, we’re nearly at the end of June, and into July. Where has this month gone? I was woke up this morning at some un godly hour of 4.45am…I never knew that time existed…to the sudden down pour of rain!! It didn’t last long, about 5 minutes I think, I went back to sleep and woke up 2 hours later. Not quite so hot today, so I went to the allotment this morning for a couple of hours. The skies were very threatening, but there was no rain, but when I got back home there was a faint rumble of thunder. The thunder rumbled around for about 4 hours until it finally left. We had a massive drench about 2pm I think it was, but I was in school adjusting show costumes at the time. Whilst at the allotment this morning I picked Mangetout, Carrots and Potatoes that we’ve just had with some gorgeous sausages. I also cut 2 small fennel and 1 round green Courgette that we’ll have tomorrow with some chicken. The weeds seem to love the rain, oh the joy!

  1. Hello Claire, I’m gardening in NW5 and thoroughly enjoyed this afternoon’s thunderstorm! I watered my veg last night as I couldn’t be sure that it would rain but was still pleased to have the downpour today. It was very dramatic and, thankfully, a lot cooler!

    • It definitely made a huge difference when the storm came. We didn’t get any really exciting thunder and lightning , just 1 close one. But the plants really enjoyed the thorough soaking.

  2. Awesome that you got rain. I know the joy of hearing it in the night. No watering!
