I really can’t think of any other reason for it than global warming.
Me too, but perhaps we just don't have the skills to imagine what else can it be! And you guys had SUCH a crazy summer - we keep a keen eye on the weather over there of course because of my sister in law. I hated England above 22 degrees - it's so darn HOT and I spend my time searching for swimming holes and it's so darn cold in the sea!
When we lived through drought here, I was adamant I would water my veggie patch anyway and fuck em. Of all things! All that water that goes into food production and transport and my locally produced veggies have to suffer? But not watering with a hosepipe DOES make you more conscious of how you are using water.
It's so cool you have an allotment. I never had one there as we always lived rurally on decent sized land but I always loved the idea, there seems a real sense of community there.
Yes, allotment community is great. Such an abundance of knowledge to learn from them too. With my small plot I always use watering cans and I continued to do so while hosepipe ban was on. They only lifted it last month! Now we have tons of rain and it’s all reversed, while in Poland it’s snowing 😂
