This is the week in the year when gardening really becomes fun and starts to entertain us daily at the very least until harvest time.
The next few weeks will be interesting if only for the variety of weather typical at this time of year. We can reasonably expect sunshine, gales, rain, more sunshine, ice and even snow. It is such a formative time for the garden.
Keeping an eye on the weather is great fun, whether or not you are a weather spotter. …And for an interesting project at home or in the classroom take a look at these digital weather stations.
Studying the weather not only helps to plan your gardening activities but also links well with the National Curriculum topics of Mathematics, Science and Information & Communication Technology. …And practical projects like these will inspire budding meteorologists in a way that only hands on experience can.
