I am wondering how long it will be before the no watering ban is lifted. My vegetable garden is a wreck. The cauliflowers and broccoli I planted are all eaten by white butterflies and any tomatoes ripening have split. The only good plant is the courgette, which goes on producing flowers and fruit without any water. I tried to pull some carrots last week and they broke halfway so I had to dig them out as the soil is so hard.
It has been so dry here that the weeds on pathways and the scoria around the potagers have died - one good thing about the drought!
I have spring bulbs in the fridge in the meantime. I have not quite decided whether to plant them in the garden or in pots. I shall probably do pots.
