Today started with a fresh westerly wind which got stronger as the morning progressed, all of the nets were closed at 10am as the wind picked up. A very intense thunderstorm hit us in the late afternoon and the rain lasted a little over an hour before relenting, leaving quite a lot of standing water. In other news we harvested the first produce from the obs veg patch, which is loving the rain at the moment!
