We've had rain pretty much every day since they brought in the hosepipe ban because of the drought. If you live in the UK it's probably been the same for you. The upside is that I haven't had to lug lots of cans of water up the hill, which is our garden, and that's just as well at the moment as I continue to be in the grip of this virus.
It's not so good for the chickens, which are in a bit of a mud bath, although I did top up their straw yesterday, but it's all a bit soggy and mucky now.
I took the opportunity to go out and give them some meal worms and check for eggs when the rain eased off a bit.
No eggs so far today, but yesterday it was later in the afternoon when they decided to lay.
Things seem to continue well in the veg patch, although I didn't inspect everything too closely.
I was glad to see that this and one or two other onions have sprouted.
I think the carrots have started to come through, too, the ones with the narrow leaves. I clearly need to do some weeding as soon as I'm well enough and the weather allows.
Hubby covered the potatoes up on Saturday, but they're pushing through again.
The rhubarb is doing so well I thought it was high time I picked some.
P.S. Hubby enjoyed stewed rhubarb and ice-cream for pudding last night.
