Spuds are up!

A walk in the pouring rain naturally took us under the railway bridge, through the lake which is Marsh Lane and on to the allotment.
The torrential rain and wind had blown some netting around the site but our plot was all in one piece - you can see how much it rained overnight and this morning from our rain gauge - amazing!
And we were pleased to see our first potatoes (Belana) have poked their first leaves out of the ground - knew they'd appreciate the rainfall! That's 3 weeks since they went in.

When we got home I sowed 3 Cape Gooseberries in the bedroom cloche - we bought the dwarf variety otherwise they can grow like crazy - especially if we do get the dry hot summer we're expecting!
