Every spring is the same song: when is it raining a lot of rain? In Portugal we are not shy of sunshine, but about water for our garden.
Of course, we can spray the entire garden and make sure the plants do not bump, but rainwater is another story. In rain there are many more nutrients for plants and shrubs than in tap water. After a rain shower, you just see everything grow!
Ronald has been eager for weeks to ewe the ground in the orchards with his antique tractor. This spring it was scary dry, occasionally a splash, but actually too little to wet the soil well and so to be able to fresen. One night it was raining and Ronald dared take the step to work the ground. If you do this at the beginning of June, you do not look back all summer, there is no more weed growing (by the drought) and we have a more beautiful face. The tractor (one of 1974!) Was taken out of stables and Ronald, or his tractor, was more imaginated by the thick diesel clouds that ejected the old beast. But the result may be: the citrus tree farm is very close and weathery all summer! (Picture 2 was before milling!)
