    We got 19 mm in a storm yesterday, first time in a couple of months, it topped up the house tanks but the veggie garden didn’t even get planted as the rains were scarce even then. The tanks we use for the plants we kept for the treelings and fruit trees. Our dam has been dry since before Christmas.

    It has been so hot here that lots of the trees have dropped their leaves even though I’ve been watering from the dam but that is now too low to pump from.

    The rainfall is so unpredictable, parts of your state have had far more than they want where as other parts are crying out for rain. Our dam has been dry since before Christmas, so we have been watering using the tanks. Each tree gets about 3 L. a week, it has kept them alive at least.
