    I ‘m sorry, wish I could send our Pacific Northwest rain… it never stops.

      Thanks for the thought Linda! Meanwhile I’ll keep filling the watering can… ;)

    We’re experiencing the same problem; having to water furiously, sometimes every evening. It doesn’t look like there will be much respite or rain in the near future which can only mean a hose pipe ban edging ever close. It already takes over an hour to water everywhere in the garden so I am dreading the prospect of having to run back and forth with watering cans. Please can we have some rain, by night if possible???

      hose pipe won’t affect commercial growers…I don’t think. :) Hope is all going well for you Jason.

    I know, I know, I know (Sybil Fawlty voice)!! My soil is dustlike too and AND some stupid greedy slug or snail has eaten most of my potted seedlings! Woe is me!

      I share your grief!!! Vigilance is key. We lost 10% from our sentry box…but it is a lesson learnt. …and after all this is a journey not a destination. :)
