Rain at last
We have had a very long run of dry weather. We have been enduring (or enjoying, depending on point of view) a heatwave over recent weeks. The ground has been tinder dry for some time and for weeks I have been taking water over to the allotment three of four times a day. And then, last night, came the deluge. I reckon we had about 10cm of rain. The water butts are refilled, the pond has been topped up and the upright wheelbarrows were filled to the brim. The water was desperately needed. Hopefully the vegetables and fruit trees will feel the benefit.
