At this time of the year GD becomes like the rest of the world, there is a great need for water and everyone wants to control it. Of course I am the same as everyone else. It is very hard to see plants that you have grown start to look stressed. The artichokes are going to need to get some water very soon. I have water on the sorrel now and may need to get up early and get the water on the artichokes before the others come in. I can then have a morning swim which I am very much enjoying, it is one thing I miss in England, the lack of time in the water.
