Funny Summer we are having this year. Heaps of rain, we’ve only had to water the garden a handful of times so far. Things seem to be about 2 months behind where they should be. I did a bit of weeding and did find 2 massive gherkins hiding under the weeds. We have zucchini, but nothing else to harvest really. The corn is just starting to flower now, so that is still some time away.
We’ve had lots of Thunderstorms is the past few weeks. On Wednesday we had about half an hour of thunder, but no rain. Bizarre. Yesterday we had another, unfortunately yesterdays one was not just thunder, lightning and rain, but hail too. Not your average size hail either, marble size hail. (insert swearing here). It lasted about half an hour, and the rain for about an hour. The driveway was a lake. Here’s some pics.
This was the sorry state of the sunflowers and pumpkins after the hail.
Bugger !! Oh, the other big downside to the rain yesterday, it was coming from the east, which is not the prevailing weather side and I didn’t realise that Cam’s window was open. There are no eaves over his window, so 2 thirds of his room was wet. Wet carpet, wet bed, wet toys. Aargggh. It’s all dry today, but wasn’t much fun. Half an hour after the rain stopped we were back up to 26°C again. Not bad today though.
