Rain at last

We have installed 4 water butts on the allotment over the past month. Since then, we have had barely a drop of rain. We have no direct water supply on the allotment and nor do I think there should be one. Pouring water all over the ground that is good enough to drink is an appalling waste of a resource and environmentally damaging. Getting the water butts set up was therefore a priority for us. (We do bring some grew water from the house as well.)

On Saturday it did at last rain. Not a heavy down pour but sufficient to wet the soil and help along the seeds we already have planted. And it is raining again now. Time to put away the rain dancing kit!
