The amount of rain we are having at the moment is causing us some problems. Having experienced a heat wave in March, with the ground baked hard, now we have waterlogged soil and a great deal of mud. We have to let the hens out of the chicken run as that is just a mudbath. We have not been able to plant the potatoes as the ground is so wet and I am a bit worried that we are running out of time to get them in. In addition, the weather is stopping us from checking the hives. So stop the rain dancing everyone and give us just a couple of days of dry weather, please.
