Blimey Ken, brrrr!

Grass min here was 12.2C, which is pretty normal.

At least you got some action weatherwise. Here for the last two days it
has been fairly cloudy, calm and rather mundane. The grey clouds are
there but alas no rain falls.

Soil is now just dust, even quite deep down. In the garden the goji
berry looks to have died and some of the ivy has too. But everything
else seems OK as they must have deep roots. The vines are laden but my
only worry is that if we get a sudden downpour the grapes will swell too
quickly then split and rot. The olive tree is relishing this summer and
is covered in little olives; might get a good crop for once!

The landscape reminds me of Tuscany in late August with its ochre-brown
fields contrasting with the green trees.

Hi, Nick,
Passed a milestone today that I know you will appreciate! 1,000hr sun for the year - about 2 weeks ahead of normal. Behind you of course but not bad for the NE Pennines. There is a bit more green here after Monday's storm, but not a lot. Promise of some more rain tomorrow but the farmers in Teesdale are beginning to struggle after a long, severe winter and now the drought.

We don't usually reach 1000 hours in a whole year in Tideswell. We
probably will this year, though.
