Lucky Lucky Lucky

Living not far from the Somerset Levels I consider myself lucky not to be affected by flooding, unlike many other unfortunate people living in various parts of the country. My latest video of my plots was taken earlier today, after another mornings rainfall. The rain has died away as I type and the wind is picking up yet again.

                                                   
 
Just a couple more photographs taken earlier today.

  1. It looks pretty darn squelchy but it could have been a lot worse.

    1. That's true Elaine. Nowhere near as bad as many other people have it. The worst thing is waiting for some drying out. A sunny weekend but raining ALL day again today.

  2. Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful! I have been lucky so far, with no damage to my property so far and no flooding, although we have had strong winds and lots of rain. Not good gardening weather, eh?

    1. Always good to hear of no damage amidst the chaos all around the country. Certainly not gardening weather Mark, looks like a late start outdoors.

  3. Our plot is soggy but nothing like the amount of standing water that you have. Just small patches on some plots where there are dips in the ground.

    1. Only a few miles away from here and some people have water up to the top of their ground floor windows, waiting and watching is the worst thing. Funny thing is the warmness in February.

    2. Strange though - Martyn's weather data shows it has been warmer than usual at night but not during the day. The day and nightime temperatures seem to have come closer together.

    3. Over the past couple of years, mainly late Summer & Autumn I've noticed that as the temperatures drop in the early evening, then later on approximately 9 p.m. ish, there has been a distinctive rise in them, on a regular daily basis. Has Martyn got any records of this? I don't keep weather records, maybe its time to start.

The Last Post

As my readers will already know I moved to a new house (bungalow) last year. Much work, updating, d. i. y. and a vast amount of gardening and landscaping needed doing to the property. Most of the gardening to the rear of the property has now been completed just as the Wintery weather begins to take hold. A good sized vegetable plot is one of the features in the back garden prepared and ready to be utilised starting with next Springs sowing and planting. With this in mind I spent a couple of weeks last month tidying up N1 plot before deciding to give it up just over a week ago. Due to the amount of work on the house and gardens this year my blog posts have been just about none existent. Over the past seven years I have enjoyed reading many other allotment/gardening blogs and meeting/talking to lots of other gardeners on the "net". I hope my blog has been of interest and some use too, to all who have spent their time looking in on it. Good luck and best wishes to all you love…

Rooko's April Top 10 Tips & Tryouts

1. Clear away spent flower heads from spring flowering bulbs such as hyacinth & daffs. Don't cut away or discard the foliage as it will replace the bulbs energy for its next flowering.

2. If the weather in your area has been dry enough lately and your soil is not wet and heavy, now is the time for some rotavating/digging, adding compost/manure as required to the soil.

3. Air temperatures are still relatively unpredictable in my neck of the woods at present, it may be worth checking the germination temperatures of various seeds before sowing takes place.

4. Easter weekend was the traditional time for getting your potato tubers into the ground. Don't put them into wet soil and remember Easter weekend is early this year so another couple of weeks wait isn't a problem.

5. More overnight frosts have been happening in this part of the country recently, compared to the past few years. So if you are sowing planting this month keep cloches or other plant protection equipment a…
