So, it got up to 52, rained some, then the sun came out. sunny

THEN, it got so dark we had to turn on the lights (4pm), the temp started dropping so fast we started a fire in the wood stove. lots o

The hail came down in bucketfuls, temp dropped below 40, hail turned to snow -- which stuck since it was landing on ice balls instead of warm ground. Thunder, lightning -- right on top of us -- rattled the windows. hiding

Then, it all went away, the sun came out, and the temp started back up again as if nothing had happened. Is Mother Nature crazy or what? crazy!

Here's the deck, covered in snow/hail.

Warm weather with plenty of rain.  1.5" yesterday, and another 1.25" so far today - still raining for another hour or so.

3 nice days, then mostly rain for the rest of the month. We're still in deficit, so I can't complain, and I still haven't started the rest of my seeds, so that's on me. Embarassed

What a difference a day makes!  Yesterday it was 70°F, and I had the cold frame open to harden off the seedlings. Today is 30°F, and everything is closed up tight.

Cold! It's about 42 and that's the high for the day. It's been rainy and drizzle and sleety and generally unpleasant for the past few days, as well. 10 day forecast says it should warm up a bit this weekend, but no guarantees.

We have had three days of fantastic spring sunny weather..  Pity I'm grounded because of health risks for 12 weeks minimum because of the Corona virus spreading like a hurricane driven range fire here in Great Britain .

 Stay safe folk . Tonight at 20.00 hrs  23/ march 2020 we have some very  serious legally enforceable , " Stay in your homes "  info from our Prime Minister Boris Johnson & his world leading teams of advisors .   This Corona virus ain't taking any prisoners it's very very contagious & deadly . 

 At least with our fully enclosed back garden  I can do ANSFG in a few days time when I've finally finished putting in all seven internal replacement wooden English white ash window cills & making good the walls & paint work where to old plastic once were removed when we had triple UPVC glazing & a new front door put in mid February this year .

Having a garden helps with the cabin fever. Sunny, cloudy, rainy, dry, windy, calm, here. Sounds like typical spring weather. Some of the seedlings are ready to plant but the soil is still too cold. idk

Absolutely right!  Spent the entire afternoon out working on the gardens. All of the Kale, Chard, and Spinach is planted and growing great. Planted half of the onion seedlings today - the other half are too small yet, and need another week or two to mature before planting. Already eating radishes and leaf lettuce out of the bed.

That's what's happening here, too. It was nice and sunny until 4:30pm, when it suddenly turned cold, dark, and windy. I put the chickens to bed early, brought in some firewood, and the seedlings I've been taking out and bringing in every day. I just barely got all that done when the rain started.

 In weather like this harden them off for several days by putting them out in the sun for a few hours and bringing them in before the temperatures drop too much .
 I've hung back from sowing anything as I've had my hands full for much of the last six weeks replacing all the old plastic window cills with clear varnished  white English ash & making good the walls & match painting  where I've sanded down the filler etc . 

Alison has been out developing her tan weeding the raised beds ready for me to turn them over and start sowing the onion sets and get a few small outside seed bed strips going .  I'll also be raising indoors & in the glasshouse

The problem now is that the weather has been so absolutely beautiful, and the "Stay at home" order has gone on for so long, that we are running out of things we can do in the garden. Wink 

I have all of frost-resistant plants already planted. Today I cut down the cover crops to start them decomposing, and cleaned up the area around the raised beds to have them ready for summer. Sat down of the bench and looked over everything, and said to myself, "Self, there isn't anything else that needs to be done right now...."  Very Happy

If it's warm enough then now is the time for contemplating and not working . 
 When my lass had a couple of miscarriages & I'd become disabled she did everything , then one day whilst driving home along the freeway at 70 mph suddenly found she got double vision ,  had difficulty deciding which view to follow.

She was able to drive to the nearest hospital who gave her an emergency brain scan & kept her in over night , putting the event down to extreme stress. 
 She was given all manner of drugs to dope her mind & reduce the stress ( in fact they appeared to make things worse ).

 That's when I took over , despite me struggling to walk I got her to walk with me as far as a big lump of concrete at the bottom of the garden and sit in the sun & left her there whilst I went elsewhere to sit and start training my young gundog to sit , stay , come,  fetch,  go left /right etc. etc.

 During these training sessions I noticed a big change in Al for the better , she'd started to deeply engage with nature noticing all manner of little things such as watching a spider making it's web , seeing how ants climbed plants to milk aphids of honeydew etc.  The concrete block became christened as her contemplating stone ..she still refers to it twenty years later.
 
 It taught both of us that you need to find somewhere to go in body & mind so you can remove yourself from stress in your life for a simple 5 minutes of " Me time" each day (with your TV , computer &  cell phone turned off).
 
 We now have a frog stone in our garden .. so we can sit on it like a frog to become a prince or princess as we switch our minds off and contemplate the beauty of nature around us .

Three more days of winter/spring, then it will be summer for at least a week. I'll check then to see if I can trust it to be real. We have had snow in April around here. Rolling Eyes

We were in Spring mode for the past week or so, but a cold front came through yesterday and returned us to the very cool weather.  Went from the high 60's and low 70's, down to the mid-40's. Typical Ohio weather.  If you don't like the weather here, just wait 15 minutes and it will change.

It's been delightful. Since I planted out the tomatoes, eggplants and peppers, so of course it's changing to windy and chilly. Shocked
