Week 23 – Year 2

12th July – 19th July 2009

Back from the holiday break and in fact I need another holiday to recover the holiday just had…. the washing and all…..

We moaned of the flaming heat and now we moaned for where the heat gone…. too many rain showers now… don’t know when to due with the mountain of weeds at the allotment… and on the other hands all crops properly all juice up and ripe to pick….

Harvest

Picking is a cheerful motion and definitely plenty to pick… I have bumper good crops of potatoes this year, still plenty left in the ground to enlarge the sizes….. Besides my stocks there are others who are generous to share their pickings…. Thanks you Bill’s red currents and Barry’s cabbages…
