Taking shelter from the rain
If my hopes that a bit of rain on the allotment meant the end to the dry period of recent weeks, they were a bit premature. Yes, we had rain, but it wasn't very heavy or long lasting. Still, it was enough for my hens to take shelter, for a few minutes at least, and one of them made use of an upturned wheelbarrow.
The dry period continued into today. So, in sharp contrast to this time last year, we are facing a water shortage and plants outdoors are going to have to be watered with water brought over in carriers from the house.
