It's been a day of minor annoyances.
I noticed the chicken's drinker was empty. It takes a gallon and cleverly lets out a little at a time into a drinking bowl so they have a constant supply of fresh water. When I refilled it though it didn't let out a little at a time, it all poured out straight away. There's a large crack in the top that lets in air and stops the mechanism from working. Looks like something heavy has jumped on it. Hmmm - I wonder what that could have been?
Gaffer tape has fixed it for now, but how long it holds up remains to be seen.
Then I went to the allotment to water everything. It has been bone dry and very hot for a long while so I've been watering every day. It takes quite a while to do everything, as well. Just as I finished, it started to rain.
