The Earth is Flat

No, no, I realise it isn't but I do wonder sometimes if those who deny that global warming is happening are the modern day equivalents of the "Flat-Earthers."

Here we are, the last day of November, Latitude 50.84 in the northern hemisphere and what do we see, apple buds out and blueberry in flower.

Now then ... just where is it we fall off the edges?

Apple leaves coming out at the end of November

Blueberry bud opening, end of November

Guess what? It's raining.

There I was, beds prepared for garlic (regular and elephant) to be planted and shallots too, the one behind is for broad beans and the heavens opened, so here I am posting a picture of the, as yet un-planted beds.
