I do dig plenty of muck into the beds and I think the unintentional feeding with molasses has had some input. The clay subsoil is proving good to have - despite the prolonged period of very high temps I don't think I've had to water much more than usual and the squashes are swelling rapidly.

It's phenominal! I've never had that much success with
Uchiki Kuri for some reason.

Lucky you, it keeps missing us. Just looked at rainfall radar and can see that the east and south-east of the country is under the coloured blobs.
Hope it's a useful amount.

Still nothing here, but I'm hopeful. My youngest has just gone away camping for the weekend, so I hope it's still a good weekend for her

We finally had some rain last night. A bit more than previously - there was about 1 mm in my little bucket. Good chance of more tonight.

We’ve had a good amount of rain here on Friday and again today. I’d like to thank everyone who went to Womad for bringing this rain.

It wasn't the rain but the strong wind which brought the campers back a day early. My daughter had just over an hour's sleep on Friday night because the wall of the tent was banging into her face continually. She got up and went for a walk at 4am, and said that all over the campsite people were putting down their tents and getting ready to go home. Ironic that with all that good weather they had to choose the wet and windy weekend, but she still enjoyed time with her friends.
