The rain started at midnight here and hasn't stopped since (which I'm very thankful for!) Like fidget, my garden is parched with soil dry down to at least a foot which I discovered when digging up some spuds the other day. Planted 45 young leeks (well, quite old leeks actually - should have bunged them in weeks ago) yesterday so they should now be nicely watered in! One 50l bag of FYM per row dug in first, so they should have every chance of growing to a reasonable size.
If any of you have had enough of the rain, please ask Fairygirl to "magic it" this way - another 12h would be perfect!
