Is soil moist? Ha ha Verdun. I know you live in the dreamy southwest with its soothing, balmy zephyrs blowing in from the Caribbean but I'm in the peaky Peak district where every peak catches the rain. We've had rain in one form or another (mist, fog, drizzle, plain rain,shower, downpour, or storm) for weeks now. This afternoon we have a special treat in store in the form of another thunderstorm. My water butts are overflowing. If there was a liquid equivalent of the National Grid I could export the stuff and make a fortune.
But thanks for the suggestion.
