28th March

I've not had time to even look out the window today. I saw some blue sky, so I assume it has been a nice day?

It is still chilly of an evening, though, and when I went to bed last night (about 12.30 ) it seemed very misty outside.

Everything is very dry though - we have a hosepipe ban starting next week. If we don't get some rain soon here in the South East, I don't give much for our crops again this year. This includes fruit, veg - and hay as well as cereal crops like oats, wheat etc.

As far as hay is concerned it already costs about £5 per bale. I can see £6 by the end of the year :-(
