Storm Ellen

This morning we got up, after a night with little sleep, to find that Storm Ellen had broken large branches of our prunus cerasifera and two birch trees. She also rampaged through our little, temporary veg patch, damaging our precious, long-nurtured and slow growing tomatoes and various of our recently planted veggies.

It is raining heavily again outside, as it has been for most of the night and promises to continue for the next few days, so we’ve done what we can for now, and can only hope that the current deluge doesn’t do too much more damage.

Battered beet leaf and turnip seedlings
Perhaps 100 apples litter the ground.

The case for a polytunnel couldn’t be stronger.
