Rain rain go away.
Despite the weeks and weeks of dry weather leading towards drought, a few days of rain and I've had enough. Hoping for some dry weather so I can get down to the plot.

Popped over for a couple of hours this afternoon, and they were very productive.
Cut the grass, trimmed the long grass around the strawberry bed. Filled the water butts. Sowed basil, rocket, cucumbers, lettuce, salad leaf. Dug out more compost. Fed everything with chicken manure. Watered everything, and built nets over the salad bed.
Unfortunately a little late for the cabbages I planted on Sunday, as they've bees stripped. I am hoping they will recover.
All in all pretty pleased with the plot so far.
Forgot to bring tubs for strawberries and raspberries, I will have to pop back later or early tomorrow to pick them.
