Farmers and the weather

Why do farmers obsess about the weather…because it’s always wrong, that’s why!

Today we are having the most unbelievable rain. And mist. Can’t even see 20 yards to the neighbour’s house! Can’t even get to the herb garden without getting drenched! Can’t say I’m thrilled. Is this really southern Spain?

And tomorrow, supposedly more of the same. I suppose the lettuces like it, but how can we keep up with our Cutting The Trees schedule if it rains every day!?

But thinking about it, at least we GET rain. Reading about the 10 year drought in Australia brings things into perspective. And our friend John lives in an area of Spain where by mid-July he has no water.
