Where is the rain?
When I saw the weather forecast for today I was left with a glimmer of hope that we would get some rain. We had gales this morning but it was lunchtime before the rain arrived. It was a downpour but it didn't last long enough to dampen the ground. On the allotment this afternoon I dug two trenches to plant potatoes but the ground was bone dry. We need soem rain - and we need it badly.
