Finally got a little rain today. Only .4", but welcome. September total is now at 1.6" - the driest September since I started recording data in 2006.
At least one of the barrels nearly filled. I was loathe to have to actually drag out a hose. I've only done that 2ce this year, and that was when I planted the row of burning bush back by the swing bed. There was no way I was going to haul water out there.
The rest of this season? It's all been rainwater - and I think it's one of the reasons the flowers and veg did so well this year. Even now the pot plants are still outstanding.
The sun is shining and we've got dry and sunny until Friday. What will I do until then? Hmmm. Hint: notice anything new in this pic?
