Needless to say having been as dry as a bone up to the time of the launch on 3rd June it then proceeded to rain quite satisfactorily. Too satisfactorily some might say with the result that I spent a fair amount of time the week before last bobbing about on a windsurfer sawing strategic bits off the outlet pipes. I don’t look my best in neoprene.
we’ve been planning to create a reservoir in the little valley in front of the house. It should hold about 800 cubic meters and save us around £5000 a year. We know we’re doing the right thing because every time we go to a horticultural conference most of the speakers are talking about the need to save water.
