I tweeted last week that we still had not had any rain, but at last we have, I think our arms are 2 inches longer with carrying so many cans of water keeping all our freshly planted cabbages etc alive. We saved most of them, and now with some real rain they are looking very healthy.
The dry spell was good for making hay though, no worries, which makes a change. We still have to make some silage when we have enough grass to cut again, another reason for needing rain.
The summer veg is going well, we are now picking tomatoes, beetroot, courgettes, potatoes, salad leaves,
french beans, spinach, carrots and probably something else that I have forgotten.
Winter planting is going well. The season has been so different from last year, thank goodness.
The shop continues to be busy with all our regular customers and holiday makers.
