All this talk of the weather for the winter I am not particularly concerned about as I am sure there will soon be talk of a white Xmas and a big freeze. What I need is a period of sustained rainfall before we go into the winter. While we have had small amounts of rain, enough to just keep the grass growing, we have a massive soil water deficit which has been accumulating month by month since April. August having been the only month with close to average rainfall. Yes we have had a very warm June & July with temperatures that stopped grass growth but the winter coming, without above average rainfall which usually brings higher temperatures then we are going to struggle for feed. So all you weather experts when is it going to rain in East Sussex and Kent?
