The rain which fell a couple of weeks ago was enough to enable us to stop irrigating.
It wasn’t, however, enough for much growth on dry land and one of our neighbours has been grazing the long acre to save what pasture he’s got.
It’s not a lot of fun watching over your stock on the road verges. When I stopped to chat to him a couple of days ago he was understandably worried and desperate for a follow up rain.
Today he might be getting it. My farmer found 4 mls in the rain gauge this morning and it’s still drizzling.
