Will it ever be dry again?

Will the ground ever dry up so that we can work on the allotment without being caked in mud? When it isn't actually raining the weather is mainly gloomy, damp and drizzly. 

It's difficult to imagine that we may end up hauling watering cans around the plot later in the year.

We did have some dry, sunny days at the weekend so last week we did manage to do some work on the allotment. It is still very muddy so the work didn't involve any digging Martyn, started work on the compost area. He began emptying one of the bays and spreading the compost on beds in which potatoes will be planted. He is also replacing some panels as he goes along.

  1. The turkey paella looks good ! Yes we wish it would stop raining now too .

    1. We really do need the soil to do some drying Debbie. Our clay soil retauns water.

  2. Pretty sad that I am jealous you are able to spread your compost. We are supposed to get more snow on Tuesday. Winter is never going to end.
