Hopefully you will get enough rain up north, but it can be very sparse here. Though I do admit some people seem to do a lot of watering. I reckon one allotment on our site uses more water than everyone else put together.
I do think plants need a bit to get going, though I do try and plan my sowing with the weather forecast.
How much rain did you have yesterday? We had just enough to wet the ground. And how much rain have you had this week? We have had three showers each enough just to wet the ground. Our next forecast rain is next Wednesday.
