    It is now almost the middle of June and we had to light the fire last night. I do not think we have had a fire this late before. We are in mid Brittany, is it the same elsewhere?

    The tomatoes have had plenty of flowers but no fruit has formed.

    No doubt though, the media will report that June has been the hottest on record to go with their climate change agenda.

    For sure, I can’t remember a June as cold as this. No doubt it’s due to ….er… warming.

    Same here in Sud-Manche. Been lighting the wood burner most evenings.

    Global Warming?? When do we get the warming part??

    The warming bit is when you get into bed with your hot water bottle……..not yet retired for summer.

    Yep, freezing!!  Not sure where they get their stats from for the warmest months…..we will definitely need to dispute this if they say June was the warmest! Maybe the summer is just delayed….wishful thinking!

    I stood outside two or three days ago at around midday, one of those days when there was a clear blue sky, not a cloud visible.

    I felt that the heat from the sun wasn’t as hot as a typical day in June that we have been used to in recent years,  considering that it’s a week or so before the summer solstice when the sun is right overhead at midday. The air temperature was only about 14 C due to the cold wind from the north/north west.

    Maybe changes are afoot in space weather?

    I am not sure if it is anything to do with it but the hay which is on three sides of us and is normally cut in May is now uncut and out of control. normally they get a second crop at the end of September but I can’t see that happening this year.

    The grass hasn’t stopped growing!

    There is some heat in the sun but the wind is mighty chilly!

    I’m sitting watching tv…..with a hot water bottle clutched between my knees….lovely.

    I cannot believe how many layers I am wearing in the middle of June.  I play tennis indoors all year round and I have worn my skirt once this year, still playing in trousers.

    Yep, middle of June and morning temperatures are struggling to reach double figures. I look out of the window this morning and it is overcast, dark and raining. I think summer was on a Wednesday last year.

    Global warming? …………………..seriously :scratch:   :wacko:   :unsure:

    We’re filling the plunge pool….thinking of mini ice skating!

    decision was taken on hottish day last week….must be mad!

    Its all my fault of course…..I actually decided to grow tomatoes…bought three plants…inspired by everyone’s posts!

    They are now covered in a plastic bag to protect them from the cold…..maybe I’ll lend them my hot water bottle…no way…I need it.

    I had to have a hot water bottle, dragged back out from the cupboard I thought it was staying until the autumn, to keep my feet warm in bed last night!

    I’m still wearing my socks & boots. I normally have my sandals out & the boots stored away by now.  The cherries are still small & green & the walnuts aren’t very big either. I’ve also noticed that the maize is way behind & the barley & wheat is no where near turning golden.

    Resorted to wearing socks in bed and the gale force winds have all but demolished my Rose arch :cry:

    16th June 2024 at 9:56 am #600488

    I have gone back to thermal tee-shirt under a sweat shirt and thermal socks .

    And we lit the woody in the lounge a couple of night’s ago.

    16th June 2024 at 11:12 am #600497

    I had to put the butter in the fridge to warm it up!
