    The lack of rain is definitely becoming a problem. The water butts ran dry weeks ago so now we’re using the hose, but that only reaches so far. For all of the raised beds watering cans are required; my arms will be dragging along the ground by Autumn if things carry on this way!

    I only have three ammi majus plants – loads of them self-sowed last autumn and I stupidly assumed they were growing away happily but when I went to look for them, I realised only three had got through the winter. Masses of ammi visnaga, though, which I’m less keen on. Still, they’ll have to do. Sorry to hear your Cornwall trip’s off. We are forecast heavy rain this weekend, but I never believe these forecasts. Never thought I’d be so anxious for a downpour! x
