A tough year for growing
Many more counties in the southern half of England are now officially in drought. Water authorities have banned the use of hose pipes. I don't usually use a hose to water my vegetables but I will do my bit for water conservation.
The water butt is full, along with other containers that I have filled. The water won't last long so I intend channeling bath water into the garden for irrigation.
This year I have double the space for growing. Not much though. About 10 square meters. Packed into it and a few containers are 40 potato plants, 8 tomato plants, 50 shallots, 100 onions and 3 tubs of salad greens.
