Heavy rain

Early hours of Sunday morning, the last day of July, heavy rain.

There must have been a fair amount of rain, The soil was like dust, Sunday wet for a couple of inches down, but dry below.

A terracotta pot, the plate below, full of water. This usually only happens in the winter.

But still too dry to spread compost.

Today, the surface dry.

July 2022 driest July on record.

Two weeks ago, the hottest day on record, 40.3C.

Tonight, or at least early hours of the morning, more heavy rain forecast. But it is going to take a couple more nights of heavy rain for the water to penetrate deeper.

Sunday, a couple of Seven District takeaway cups tossed on the compost heap. Picked up from Picnic Social last week.
