Today the rain came down. Most of the day there was some rain, sometimes gentle sometimes quite hard. It will make no difference to the drought; we need huge amounts of rain to fill the aquifers, rivers and reservoirs. It will, however, help growers in the short term because the top soil will be nicely soaked, for a while anyway. It should have put back some of our lost water reserves too.

Jean sowed the next batch of beetroot and spinach and the first batch of spring onions.
