And the word of the week is…

Arrosage.

Watering, with a spray or a hose.

Very relevant during times of drought.  The verb is arroser.  

Interesting fact – you know the thing with all the holes that’s stuck on the end of a watering can’s spout?  Gardening fans will know already that this is called a rose.  Now you know where this name comes from – arROSEr.

You’re welcome.

Arrosage of gardens and lawns has been banned since the end of June due to the drought.  We are now at drought level 3, and the poor farmers are faced with an arrosage ban too.

Farming here is very different to farming in Ireland, but it has its own challenges.
