We got a good soaking today after weeks of nothing. Walked the potato drills yesterday evening looking for signs of life. Nothing to be seen but I bet there will be greenery within a few days now. Sowed Saturday before last.
I'll bet you will be up by 6 Blowin to watch the rain start if the times of your posts are anything to go by.

We had a good bit of nice soft rain here today.
Black & Amber country.
First early spuds are up had to cover them with hay the other night, thought there was going to be frost.

Statistically the coldest town in Ireland if I remember rightly.

When I cross the ferry bridge in New Ross I spread frost on that county.

I was out with the dog at 0530 - but still no rain. Damned Wexford lot have pinched it all. Still, I won't begrudge him it, as my spuds are well above the earthing up now.

There was a tiny, tiny bit here last night but you'd hardly notice. Changing the name of my garden to Sahara Garden. Smile Smile

Dear Mr T, Thank you for the drizzle that arrived at 0730 and the handful of showers that we've had since then. We're very grateful for all you can spare.

A little drizzle now. You'd get more moisture from a boiling kettle.
