As it appears it will never ever rain again we have had to devise a strategy for water the potager.
The latest wheeze involves two 80 litre poubelles, a hose, an electric drill, and a mini pump. Driving the car down to the potager with two 80 litre poubells sloshing around calls for extreme smoothness (it's me we're talking about, after all...), but if we don't want to see the veggies fried before they grow, it's essential.
In other news: Susan has finished sanding plaster (hoo-bally-ray!) and I have finished ridding tiles of excess glue. The question now is do I pose the tile plinthe before grouting or after?
