The importance of drains
For as long as anyone can remember there have been drains in Corn Buck.
On a daily basis, they sometimes present something of an obstacle, when
passing from one part of the garden to another, their being quite steep in places,
after five minutes of heavy rain, we remember their importance and are glad
that we erred on the side of caution and kept them clean and, relatively weed free.
Only when the rain falls does it become apparent where a little maintenance or alteration is necessary.
The irrigation pipe looks slightly redundant,
luckily T took the main pipe out of the river,
just as the down pour started.
And as soon as it starts, it stops, but we will not be crossing the river today.
