That's the noise that greeted me today as I set foot on my plot so that was it for me, to wet to do what I'd intended but no surprise after all the rain. My plots are on a slope, but some of the plots at the top still had standing water.

Thieves have struck on the site a number of sheds have been broken into and tools have been stolen. Also our sister site has been targeted too.

On the up side I discovered a huge pile of leaves has been left for me, so now do I dig them in or compost for next year. I'm not sure yet.

The broad beans seem to be enjoying the wet weather and are now 5-6" tall, so to are the Japanese onion sets I put in. But I've noticed quite a few gaps in my garlic crop.
