Summer has arrived! It’s hot, it’s dry, and the nation is outdoors applying sun block.
One of the peculiarities of a hosepipe ban is that you cannot water your vegetables, but it’s entirely legal to hose down your pet cat. The authorities have presumably thought about this, and I’m sure there is a sensible and enlightened reason for this law.
In any case, our allotment society does not allow hosepipes at any time, so we set to work with a watering can and a bucket.
