Normal service is resumed


Isn’t it good to see a weather map of Spain with sun symbols again?

The heavy rain wasn’t all bad though. The volume of water in the river Segura has improved. With half the annual amount of rain in just a few days that was inevitable.

Winter crops of broccolis, potatoes and artichokes in the kitchen gardens may have been damaged by the rain but overall the land will have benefited because the salts and other pollutants have now been washed away. This leaching of he soil will improve both the quantity and quality of crops produced next year especially the citrus fruits.
