Rain, rain and more rain
The olive picking season is upon us, so the olives will be dust free and well washed but it will be at least a week of dry and windy weather before we will be able to get started as the soil will need time to dry out.
I was planning on sowing, broad beans, peas, chickpeas and french beans this morning and was just going to start when the rain began. At least the soil should be nice and moist when sowing can be done.
Hopefully, the rain will stop soon but it's so dark and dismal outside that I think we have a few more hours of rain to come.
