The Weather: A Public Service Announcement

As the rest of the country swelters can I just say:

trees and river

It is not that hot here.

I don’t know about the rest of Scotland, but it was raining here just a few days ago, and it’s only really just brightened up again, and it was in fact a bit too cold to be wearing shorts yesterday.

And the grass is still green, and even though it’s reached the point today where even I will seek the shade, it’s still not that hot here.

There are few meteorological advantages to living in this damp little corner of Scotland – but this is one of them: when the rest of the country has finally had enough of the heat, and the chorus of moaning about the weather reaches a deafening level, and everyone else is longing for it to rain …

… That is when we will finally have our summer.

And it’s bloody gorgeous

    It looks gorgeous and the veg looks good too.
    My step son has just bought me an irrigation set and timer, the timer part is for the greenhouse which currently needs watering twice a day. If I have spare pipe I might go as far as to put some down for the toms that are doing well outside.

    We’ve got a similar system running in the greenhouse off a water butt, but I don’t think there’s the water pressure to take it outside as well
