Summers gone - first frost this morning but only light; daytime temps dropping below 20-C. The cold, "lazy" winds are here - they are the ones that are too lazy to blow around you so go straight through
Sounds like our weather! "Heatwave" here - I think it got as high as 17 today...

Well, outside you'd think the summer's been and gone. It's more like November than May at the minute. Cold, wet and windy.

Indoors, however, is a different story. We've got lush herbs and salad in the hydroponics, tomatoes starting to ripen, buds on the chillies are starting to open and the calamondins are in full flower and smell lovely.

Oh, and the central heating is on. :roll:

It's sort of raining which is good as the high wind and sun has caused drought conditions here. Whether the rain will amount to much or whether it's out hosepipe even so tomorrow is another matter.

If the wind would drop, the summer sun and showers would happen then the allotments would be more willing to look fruitful.
