Allotment 5: Water Butt World

There is only one water supply at the allotments and we are not allowed to use hosepipes. So after the guttering was fitted we got a couple of water butts. We needed to get the done quickly so that we could get them full before the hot summer weather sets in (LOL):

As promised here is the next exciting instalment of the Allotment Saga.

I then realised it would be better if I wore my gloves.
