16th day on the plot
Weather: heavy rain cleared away, leaving a stiff southerly wind. About 10 degrees.
Up to the plot for an hour, after the belt of rain had cleared away. The stiff wind was in the south, so for most of the time I was in the wind-shadow of the flats and the houses.
* Hoed the bottom plot, and around the gooseberries.
* Finished off pulling out the weeds from the first cleared square of the middle plot...
Still no real frost yet. Although judging by what was said on BBC Radio Stoke's Sunday Gardening Show, there was a frost Saturday night in the rural parts around Stoke.
