I awoke this morning to a “Severe Weather Warning” from The Met Office warning of impending monsoons in the Worcestershire area. Apparently from 03:00 am Saturday until 06:00 am Sunday, we were going to be deluged with rain. This was my view at 11:00 am this morning:
I feel like all I do lately is berate the Met Office for getting their predictions wrong, but to be fair, they are. It took them until 11:30 am to change their weather warning from 10:35 am to 22:00 hours on the Saturday for rain. How is anyone supposed to plan their outdoor lives accordingly when we have such poor information to rely on???
It took about 3 hours, but I have managed to sieve enough compost to fill 24 x 40 cell trays and 7 x full size seed trays.
This means that come Monday, I will be able to retrieve more plants from Mums and bring them down here to transplant and keep an eye on 🙂
I have several varieties to sow for January and thanks to the propagators should make a real start with my 2016 sowing.
I’ve also been going through some of the envelopes of seeds that Wendy and Mum gave me.
It’s taken a lot of patience, but have finally managed to sieve the chaff from the seeds, here are the Geranium Palladium that Wendy gave me:
Dad turned up mid-morning with a tape measure and a pad. He said as next week is going to be drier, he is hoping to finish the tunnel next week 🙂 Can’t wait!!
