Wednesday 11th July 2012 – As Queen Victoria said “One is not amused!”

The dry weather didn’t last long on the allotment this morning. I think I got about 50 minutes and then the rain came, and came and came. It got to a certain point and I realised that staying outside wasn’t a good idea, so took refuge in the car. I played a couple of games of Sudoku on my phone and by that time the rain had eased to I resumed my weeding. However, this did not last more than 5 minutes as the rain came again. At which point there was only myself, and other chap and 2 council men cutting the grass at the allotment. I decided enough was enough, and got in the car and came home. The skys are now blue, but it looks like rain is imminent again. Even though I was only up the allotment for just over and hour I managed to finish weeding another bed, start another one, side shoot my tomatoes and tie them in, plant a sunflower and do some filming. Not a total waste of time, but I wish I could have been there longer. Now it’s time for a cup of tea and as I don’t have any biscuits I think there’s a poppadum left.

    Seems like the hose ban is a WAY distant memory. I had to chuckle at the idea that “only in England” would the grass be mowed in the rain. I bet it really gummed up the mower. My two years in England taught me that almost any chore can be done in the rain except drying clothes 🙂 .

    • How I would love to mow the grass in the rain, but it’s electric, so I don’t fancy that. As I type this, the thunder in rumbling away. Looks like it’s here to stay for the evening.
