It rains mainly on the steppe

Plenty of rain about and it looks settled in for a day or two.

Harvesting sunnies and drilling wheat has stopped as a result but will resume at the earliest opportunity.

It's funny stuff this soil; to be honest I'm still learning it's peculiar characteristics. It can get absolutely soaked but with some sun and wind can be fit to drill again in two days. I think you would call it very free draining.
