Finally Bit the Bullet and Got the Hosepipe out !

In the News

Can't remember the last time it rained here , lawns cracking , everything dry as a bone . So much for April showers bringing May flowers πŸ™„.

Can't remember the last time I had the hose out in April but needs must before everything dies .

I did check πŸ˜’, nothing in the forecast . I know what you mean though , as soon as we water the garden it chucks it down πŸ™„. Maybe I shouldn't have tempted fate . on the golf course the next 3 days .😏

I've had to top up the pond already, two months ago I was bailing it out!

Golfforall I think it's fair to say I'll never be rich while I have a pond.

Filter box, pumps, air filter, and choosy fish that won't eat cheap fish food.

We have done the same, it is so dry here, and usually is, so the hose came out for both the veg and flowers! (Not every day though, we can't afford that)

Our garden is mainly clay based, so it takes a lot for it to dry out.

We have three water butts but they’re nearly empty now and I’m saving the water for the blueberries. I’m trying to manage on the hot tap runoff and other kitchen water but did put the hose on to top up the pond.
