Mrs Bale makes an appearance
The rather puzzled look on Mrs Bale's face is because she wonders why we in the northern part of the state are a little pocket of cool and cloudy whilst (her word - I'm not being pretentious here!) all around us have rain, rain, rain. My fellow New England bloggers are soggy with rain, yet we have actually had to water the plants a few times. We've had a couple rainfalls, but really nothing to write home about. The clouds have kept the grass nice and green. I harvested lots of spinach, and the peas and lettuce are growing beautifully. We've had enough sun and heat to get the zucchini (oops, courgettes!) and yellow beans popping out of the soil. The flowers are all putting on a great show, and honestly I have no complaints weather-wise. It has been quite a British spring which I love.
