Weekend garden plans..

Good weather returns almost.

Good weather returns almost.

Last night i put together a few plans for tomorrow in the vegetable garden.First off though,i will look through some of the damage caused by our unwanted friend the weather.Some of the beds that were covered over winter will have manure added to them where needed.The compost heaps will be checked on and also the greenhouse floor will be washed.Some more herbs have been added to the rotation plans for 2010 and they will be written up on the chart.With the strength of the wind here though this very minute,hopefully all will go as planned tomorrow.

I can hear the wind howling and the rain lashing down outside so hope it will be a better day for you to-morrow.

Great photo, John. You'd never think it was taken this weather. Wouldn't you be nervous of leaving water on your greenhouse floor - grey mould, and all that?

Thank you all. 

Welcome, to the club Dibbles.

I would be a little nervous Rachel but the water i use will be hot and i would never leave the place until sure it will be of no damage.

Liga the rain and wind is horrible here for the last few hours.I will take a quick check down the garden [thanks to the rain coat] in a short while to see the tunnel has not decided to depart.I hope also it will change for the best.
