Finally some rain!

It’s been a long time coming. As an “inner-city farmer”, rain becomes an important thing, closely watched and hoped-for.

The main vege patch has a watering system, but the tanks ran dry a week ago (all 10,000L), forcing us to switch to mains water.

The food forest at the back relies on rain. And there hasn’t been rain of substance for six months now, leaving the ground parched and the plants struggling.

Finally, it rained last night, as shown above. And it’s kept raining today, heavily at times.

Rain on Christmas Day, not normally considered a good thing … but great for the plants. We’re relieved.

    We were thrilled too – both our tanks were nearly empty, and the garden was desperate for a good soak.
