Not a drop of rain in sight

It has been so dry for so many weeks now. Lovely to be outside in this weather, but it is challenging to keep everything watered. We’re letting the bigger plants look for their own water by rooting downwards, but the newly-sowed seeds and the baby seedlings need regular water. We spend many days dunking our watering cans into the canals, and then walking up and down the rows. And then searching for a spot of shade to cool down. Sometimes if we’re lucky Kiki will spray us off with the hose!
