I'm itching, itching, itching to get planting......but my raised beds are water-logged.
I guess once I do get things planted I'll be screaming out for water as, YES.....here in Berkshire we have a hosepipe ban and there's no talk of them lifting it. I have every bucket, wheelbarrow, water butt, pot, pan and dish outside catching this 'free for watering' water. Everytime I have to use a bit in the greenhouse I refill the greenhouse watering can from one of the pots.
Actually I even have pots and trays in the greenhouse catching all the leaks, and I have quite a few, unfortunately not over the soil where it's needed but all around the edge!!
As soon as my water butt at the side of the house is full I divert it to the pond to get the pond level as high as I can for the fish. Once it is drained I divert it back to the butt ready for plant watering.
....but I don't like to wallow in the mud !!
