Can you believe that it’s still raining? Why won’t it stop? What have I done wrong? I promised to be good, didn’t anyone hear me? I’m not one to complain but this relentless rain is killing me (and many of my plants). This photo is typical of what is going on at mtp right now – not much. Every time I gather my tools and make a dash for the door, the heavens open and before you know it I’m sat on the sofa again cursing the rain clouds. My radish are inedible due to slug damage, my corn has been flattened by the downpour and my seed bed is awash with floating seedlings. I guess I’m lucky that my house isn’t under 2 feet of water, eh? In desperation I bought Sarah Raven’s new book in order to while away the hours!
