There's been some rain.
I've been picking snails from the hedges for a few days which means everything's getting a good drink.
But even after a solid downpour, the dams are pretty low. You have to save what you can, when you can.
A salad of very dirty cos hearts and purslane, weeded out of the parsley this week, takes only one bucket of shower water to get clean. That, in turn, gets rationed out to whichever food-bearing plants look most needy and there you have it; water-saving in action. Easy, no?
