    I live in quite a dry  Mediterranean climate. 2015 our rainfall was only 284mm. It has been a bad year, when we first bought the place 7 years age the rainfall was twice that. Even so we still manage to grow quite a few veggies over winter is better of course and once the fruit trees are established they cope.

    I write my rainfall on my calender, last year I had two and I can’t find the other one – so have no idea really what our rainfall was for last year
    but I do know the winters have got warmer, not as many frosts as when I first moved here – maybe I shouldn’t have got that cherry tree???

    Winter has changed here no more -15° so makes it easier to grow stuff.
    Rainfall 2015 was pretty good really 888mm added it up the other day….
    calliecat maybe you should have got a tropical cherry

    ballamara I know how you feel about poor rainfall we had some years with low rainfall several years in a row and you start to think vegies aren’t worth it and you struggle to save the trees ……….. and triffids lol

    888mm is just so unusual for us closer to 500mm is the norm here….. we just figure that it is global warming kicking in as we don’t get the savage frost like we used to…. I wish I could send you rain
