Well it is great to have all this rain. It is a bit of a shame about LEAF, but happy that my garden is wet for a change. I had been really concerned that we had entered our dry season after has such a dry summer. I thought we had missed our chance for soil wetting rain. I am so happy that this rain is recharging the soil and filling my empty rainwater tanks. I am also really happy that I have increased my water storage capacity by 3000 litres recently.
My new rainwater tank (approx 1000L) given to me by Wayne Bischof, is overflowing for the first time since I put it in many months ago. I have directed the overflow into 5 blue drums (so another 1000L). A friend gave me 2 IBCs a month or so back, so I moved one of these to the corner of the house and directed the downpipe into it (that is another 1000L). Now I just need to find a spot for the other IBC and get it filled (that would mean another 1000L).
I also have many containers all around the place collecting rainwater so I can reduce the town water I need to use. Rainwater is better for the garden anyway.
Hope none of you are flooding
