Hot Hot sunshine

Summer has really arrived here.  We are currently enjoying a heatwave with temperatures in the mid to high thirties, and forecast to continue through August.

Great if you are on holiday, but I guess not so much fun for the builders who are having to work in this heat on the second garden wall.

The sun has ripened our fruit trees and I have been busy making jams and preserves and drying figs.  The vegetable garden is currently producing a glut of tomatoes, so bottling will commence shortly!
