WATERING, WATERING, OH WELCOME, RAIN!!!
Last night, we had rain here in the South East. So lovely to wake up in the night and hear the drenching noise of heavy raindrops.
I wonder if anyone else has problems with hose fixtures? It drives me wild when the connections part company with the hosepipe, water sprays everywhere and I have once again to walk back to the tap, turn it off, reconnect stuff then walk back to the tap and turn on the water again.

I have loved the blue sky and the pleasure of sitting outside for an evening meal, but after nearly three weeks of hot, dry weather I have got really cheesed off with the task of keeping plants alive.
Some things in the front garden, like michaelmas daisies, have definitely given up the ghost, where the soil is dry as a sandy dessert, no possibility of it holding moisture.
There is a link to advice from the Royal Horticulture Society on watering vegetables, here.
