Message from Noah's Ark
What about this rain? We have had 80mm since June 6 and there is no sign of it stopping. Our new vegetable patch is half under water; the plastic bottles we inserted into the ground to enable us to water the roots of the tomato plants show that the water table is right up to the level of the soil! A good description of the soil would be that it is like raw chocolate cake mix when you have it in the Kenwood Chef...
Today we decided to work on the area round our lavoir for a change. It has always been wet there and although we have improved the drainage if we stood in one place for more than 30 seconds or so we sank about 3 inches. Still, we got the testosterone going by cutting down a tree to provide more light.
At one point I said to my OH, "Look at that pretty rainbow over there; it must be raining somewhere." About ten minutes later it was raining torrentially over us and we had to beat a hasty retreat back into the house!
