A damp evening in the vegetable garden.

Dampness calls on the Legumes work.

Dampness calls on the Legumes work.

Timing was just right for the drizzle to appear.About an hour was spent this evening in the tunnel potting on etc,and after having a quick bite to eat it was out to work in the veg,garden.Spent time at the Peas [legumes] area,planting out and moving on both dwarf and large,height wise.The drizzle decided to pay a visit,and that changed the job a little.First off though all canes [light branches] were put in place and all is finished except for the tying up stage,and covering the tops of the branches.All ties will be prepared and left ready.Now that the outdoor work there has changed a little,time will be spent in the greenhouse for an hour or so later.

Damp evening here too John. Very mild though. Weeds will be loving it.

Wet here in West Cork all day.  Great growing weather.  Could potatoes get blight this early?

Rain will mean that no watering will be required outdoors.

They will for sure Liam and plenty of them will appear.Not as damp here this morning.

Not the best yesterday for outdoor gardening Muddy Wellies.Long may the dry weather last when it comes.Rain thiugh when we need it to.Blight [Phytophthora] will visit in May sometimes,but the main time will be around mid to late summer.

One helping on the gardeners get Cloncaw.No panic with outdoor watering.
