A Michael Fish Moment!
This folks, is a wet day according to all and sundry weather forecasts locally. Definitely but definitely a Michael Fish moment. For the furriners amongst us, 1987 hurricane which didn’t happen according to the BBC weather forecast. Just the worst bit of wind for 300 years, that was all! Forests reduced to matchsticks in the South of the UK.
I do hope the bloody greenhouse doesn’t collapse!
Unfortunately, as far as I was concerned, the 2017 gardening season has already started. I always sow my eggplant, tomatoes, peppers and onions, plus assorted flowers the last day of January. Had I known, I might well have delayed a week or so!
Incredibly with a hot mat under them and a dome I can maintain 65F.-70F. soil temp. As you can see, they are going great guns on their alternative planet. Plus a space heater to keep the air temp above 40.
The first tomatoes and eggplants breaking through.
Weird, some guy with snow plough turned up, not the council, just ploughed and left, came back today too. Maybe the council paid him, we do pay rates after all! But definitely not a council vehicle. Maybe a councillor or big wig lives further down our cul de sac?! But mustn’t look at gift horse teeth!
Just to let you know that others’ weather forecasts are no more accurate than yours! I blame Trump, everything else is his fault so this must be too.
