This morning I had a few errands to run, one of which was to go and water the plants in the greenhouse on my allotment. They were all very thirsty. The weather this morning was very humid. We were expecting some storms later, and possibly loads of rain. Still there were going to be very hit and miss. When I was down my allotment I got a wonderful surprise when I spotted 6 ripe strawberries waiting to be picked. They were my strawberries, I wasn’t stealing them from someone else’s plot. I don’t do that, I’m a good plot holder. I very carefully put them in my cap and bought them back home. We’ll have one and a half each for pudding tonight. They smell so sweet, I can’t wait to try them.
Then at about 1pm the wind disappeared and the thunder started. Faintly to start with, but definitely getting closer. Still no rain at this point, but the skies were grey and angry! Then after about an hour the thunder was more intense and the first of the flashes came. The rain also joined in (not wanting to be left out). So I went down the greenhouse in my garden and decided to pot up my Okra plants into 6 inch pots. I had 7 plants, but 3 were a bit weedy, so I discarded those. So potted up 4 strong healthy plants. Here is how I did it.
Now it’s a little after 4pm and the storm and stuff has now gone. The sun is trying to come out again. We didn’t have much rain, but I think we were very, very lucky.
