After a few days away, we drove back today through rain, rain and yet more rain. Positively peridiluvial!
Still, at least that means the garden has had a thorough watering and the water butts are full. Fortunately, although we enjoyed some gorgeous summery warmth away in Wales, the plants in the polytunnel have also survived although they were glad of a top-up drink this afternoon. We got a harvest as well – some broad beans and peas from the tunnel as well as a good helping of ‘Relic’ lettuce, a fruitful welcome back.
