We have just been pottering for the rest of the day..pirate fettling bikes, me potting up plants big and small, and filling the waterbutts from the tap.
Not something I like doing, as our water is chloraminated, but by having the flow of water hit the inside of the butt as it goes in, the chemicals evaporate..you can smell it.
The water should be acceptable to use tomorrow. It will affect the plant growth, but better slow growth than no growth or dead plants.
Where things have to stay in pots I am moving them to bigger pots as they will stay moist for longer.
Pirate should be finishing his siesta any minute and then we have a ride into Ayr...we forgot to post a birthday card yesterday, and the only way to get it there in time is to get in the box at the sorting office . Then it will go by early post first thing tomorrow.
I could just leave him to sleep on...but he did ask to be woken this time!!
