First of all, the brilliant news is that it rained last night and it seems that everything has grown since then. Of course, it won’t be enough but maybe this next week will give us some useful top-ups.
At least, my garden doesn’t have a slope, so there isn’t a puddle at the bottom with nought at the top. It’s not exactly rocket science for me to work this out but I still did a slope measurement this morning for the Grow Observatory course I am current embarked on.
This entailed finding a suitable app on the phone so that a reading could be taken. And then lots of fiddling about to get a plausible reading.
I could have, instead, gone for the two sticks method of measuring, which would have entailed drawing a fancy diagram with degrees marked on it. The neighbours think I’m bonkers, already, so there would hardly have been any great embarrassment in this, but time is of the essence.
In all, I must have spent about ten hours on the MOOC, which fortunately was quite engrossing. Maybe I could have essued the discussions but there are a lot of interesting people taking the course and I’ve undoubtedly learned a lot from them as well.
