Ah, I found that one. In the garden, rainfall is actually the more
important thing for me to monitor, so its tempting just to get a rainfall
gauge... Much to think on.

It stopped about an hour ago in canterbury. I haven't done much in the
garden, most of the fruit trees (49ish) can be left to their own devices.
I have just been concentrating on getting seedlings started off, to the
point where I am now running out of window cill space for new seedlings.

I also made the mistake of buying to pepper plants in B&Q for 78p each the
other day during a moment of weekness.

Hmm, we seem to have a significiant KLUG gardening subgroup now, should we
consider a fork... :p
