The weather over the last few weeks has been exceptionally hot and sticky. Thankfully, we haven’t had a hosepipe ban so I’ve been able to water my borders and the veg beds in the evenings. My two water butts are empty but that doesn’t stop me feeling guilty about using a hosepipe. I’m consoling myself with the fact that my borders are jam-packed full of plants so it’s harder for the water to evaporate during the day.
