The Return of Summer

The last post spoke too soon – almost all the time since then we have had sunshine with temperatures up into the 20’sC. This has only meant that even more tomatoes have ripened so another several pounds have had to be picked and the recipe books are being scoured for recipes.

Meanwhile runner beans are also growing – most of the last lot having been blanched and frozen – but we did eat some of the fresh ones today, that only leaves several pounds to be harvested…

We also had some of the boccoli, that at least is producing  in the sort of quatity we can handle.

Apart from those, the peppers are still growing and the lettuces are getting a bit bigger so  maybe in a week they will be big enough to harvest.

So far I haven’t had time to do much with it all except collect the fallen pears and mow the lawn but maybe this week…
