A hot month in the garden and by Week 3 the water butts were at a low level. I’ve been saving our washing up water to water flowering plants and pots, leaving the water butts for the potatoes and tomatoes – and I do use the hose in the back garden once a week, just to give everything a good soaking, though I expect a hosepipe ban at any minute. Despite, or maybe because of the hotter weather, July has been a most productive month.
