Heatwave over Go Local Food!

The hot dry weather means that Go Local Food has a lettuce growing problem. It’s too hot in the poly tunnels and too hot outside. Lettuce doesn’t like weather this hot (nor dry). The winter cabbages have the same problem so not yet planted out even though this needs doing NOW. With it being so dry, the celeriac can’t be planted out yet. Even if it should be done NOW.

Though the pumpkins and other squash have been planted out, this means watering every day due to it being so hot and dry.

But it’s perfect onion drying weather!
