Looking good and dry from wednesday night onwards to at least sunday. Nearly dreading it! Time to get some work done!

I am a bit worried about the warm weather, as my husband is taking me away for a few days and I have no one to water my plants inside the greenhouse. I will give them a good watering today and hope for the best, it is Ireland after all the sun may not last too long or be too hot!!

Happy gardening everyone!!!

i would gladly do it for you but drogheda is a bit far away. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. There will be great growth while you are away and you will be delighted with how much they have grown when you return.

You were absolutely right, everything shot up and some plants almost doubled in size. Lovely surprise when I got home and nothing dried out at all.

I should go away more often, a watched garden does not grow!!

Thanks for the offer Michael, Drogheda to Cork is too far just to water plants!!!

Weekend was fantastic! Fairly bad wind today though, ruined all my work during the weekend. Fair few of my tomato plants appear to be in need of some time indoors again Sad

Have to watch out for dodgy april weather!

Anyways, looks like it will be dry later this afternoon (wednesday), dry all day thursday but showers on friday morning and a band of rain for friday afternoon. Good news is that saturday and sunday look good and dry. Cool nights again until sunday.
