Never used one, but remember reading somewhere that you have to keep them quite full - if they dry out the wood shrinks and they spring a leak.  Not sure about you, but my waterbutts normally get drained dry at least a couple of times a year

Morning all.  Its light

Another week at the coal face doesn't seem so bad if I can see the garden before I leave.  And only a couple more weeks and I will see it after work too.  

Just surveying my hands from a normal persons eyes (as opposed to a gardeners) - think it might be fair to say the brambles left their mark - even through the gauntlets
