Rain, rain, go away...

It's always the way, you have a week of nice weather when you're stuck in the office then come the weekend, just when you want to be outside, the forecast is for nothing but rain. It looks like next week isn't going to improve much either, here's hoping it dries out before the next weekend; two wet ones in a row would seem a little unfair.

Here's the BBC Weather sites view on the next few days, depressing eh!


With any luck it won't be raining first thing Saturday morning and I can pop up to the plot early and do a bit of work before the ground gets too wet. Of course whatever happens there are still jobs to be done even in bad weather, there's a load of seeds due to be sown at home for a start so I'm sure we'll keep nice and busy.

What we need is an allotment with a retractable roof!

Any better? Looks bad for Monday, you're getting torrential rain.

I KNOW! So much to do, so little sunshine... I had big plans for this weekend on the plot but I've got a nasty feeling it's all going to have to wait. Cross fingers and see what it's like in the morning I suppose...

Thankfully I was able to do a few hours on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. It was still hard going and sticky in places then! With all the rain forecast I don't think any of us are going to be able to do much until next weekend!
Have a good weekend! Cheers.

Did you manage to get in before the rain? I was too slow and now that the sun is out the ground looks far too wet. Ah well there are plenty of seeds to sow. Hope you survive the gales :)

I bet you managed to get out there today after all - even if it was to batten down the hatches before tomorrow's storm!

I look forward to hearing how you got on :)
