    Yes! I have developed a kitchen garden for a local gastro pub and they are very unhappy with me because there are lots of slugs and rain damage to plants. The pests love this rain. Until the rain stops there is little I can do I can't even keep the grass as short as I would like.

    Things were drying out here finally until last Thursday but with at least a months rain in less than a week it's back to crazy growing again!
  • Yea things were just getting there and now well challenging is an understatement

      Localised flooding yesterday apparently an inch of rain in 20 minutes! I can't remember rain like it in this country some of the fields are like lakes again. Harvest will be pushed back. The oil seed was cut and fields reseeded this time last year this year they can't even get on to cut it yet! More rain forecast for today!
      Then it's supposed to start drying up from Friday

        We had 21mm across about an hour on Monday but the ground has been so dry here for such a time, it's just draining through. It's going to ruin my families strawberry harvest this year though if it carries on much more!

    I've got weed killer jobs to do and haven't found a long enough window to sprayer, customers are complaining I'm not doing my job
    • Having to make visits specifically to spray weeds especially if the weather is dry. Otherwise I have been looking for Windows where I can spray.

      Yesterday at my last job, it rained. But then stopped as I was leaving. Checked all forecasts, waited for it to dry out (5mins) then sprayed all the weeds and left maybe 10 mins later

      It's becoming challenging at times
