If you missed the national news on Essex, you may have missed the floods. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-23831558

It was wet.

You can see the water pouring out of the gutter.  This is because we filled all 3,000 litres of the IBCs in a couple of hours.  The water pouring out is actually overflow because it has nowhere to go.

To the left, you’ll see the chicken coop project I hoped to start today.

Under the squash leaves, it’s a foot deep.

Irrigation

Last year along with the greenhouse my grandfather gave me his old irrigation system. It came with a massive amount of parts and bits and bobs. Most I didn’t even know what they did.

It took about 5 hours to do, but I can now turn on the tap and the raised beds are watered! It’ll even link up the IBC if they ever fill again! May/June was surprising dry and cold!

Replaced angled towards the IBCs and connected them up with whatever came up hand!
