Hi, our 61 days with no rain and this morning I heard the pitter patter of rain drops and thought here we go, thunder rolling on for 3 hrs and the dog jumping all over me as she is s--t scared of thunder. Low and behold there wasn't enough to do any good just damp down the dust and that was that. We have been threatened with more thunder this pm and we may see the odd very heavy shower. If it does happen after the weekend it is apparently going to get hot again. The so called experts are saying this is going to become the norm now. Still my sweep potatoes are looking like they are enjoying it so lets hope they produce this year. Happy days

We had dark clouds high winds and a blast of rain which lasted about 15 minutes to be honest I have produced more moisture on my forehead in the past week    lol(1)   there threating for more on Saturday and sunday believe that when we get it ..  Glad I watered my plot today and had a good pick cabbage, cauliflower, runners, spuds, and black currants did mean to get some curly kale but forgot that the old brain seizes up in all this heat ..  With all this heat those sweet potatoes will be cooked by the time you harvest them lottieguy  .. ROL :-))

Hi Ya, well the weather here has finally broken. We has thunder and lightening Friday night and early hours Saturday. That was 62 days and no rain, I went to the plot on Sunday as it was clear and the temperature was nice. On my arrival it started raining again, not heavy but the rain that soaks you. So that put the kybosh on that. Still it will of done some good. Day off tomorrow so hopefully can get done what I missed out on Sunday. Going to get warmer in the week so summer is still on us. Still only measured .45" on the rain gauge though.

Hi, well it's been ho hot hot since our drop of rain, its even hotter today. They have forecast thunder etc for this evening but they have done that so many times you wonder if they are playing a guessing game or lost their seaweed. We can certainly do with it as the temperatures  are forecast to drop as well. Will let you know what happens

Hi Ya, Well we had rain a whole .05" of it which roughly translates into 1.25mm in new money. The rain dance did not work. I bet when it does break it will be monsoon time and the ground will flood as it's so dry. Still I hope to get something done this weekend as it is forecast to be fresher and cooler. Won't hold my breath though, I've been transporting water in for the birds as I don't trust the dip tanks. If you saw the state of them with all sorts of rubbish floating in them they do not look inviting. I am down to my last few drops in my water butts so I may have to use the dip tank eventually. Good luck all

Hi Ya, Well my rain dance worked as well and we had rain start about 3pm and like you scary flooded roads on the way home, big flood at the entrance to plot site, filling my butts up. 4 butts full at home, had about 0.75". So happy days. Hopefully will be on the plot the w/end and get my leeks planted aswell as other jobs. It's a lot cooler and more comfortable today as well.

Had some decent showers of rain the past few days so today when we visited the plot not to work just walked the dogs discovered it was enough to half filled a water butt  . Looks like theres some more rain clouds floating about around here so may get some yet ..
