I have discovered the down side of growing courgettes in gro bags. They drink very thirstily and they dry out very quickly, so I am having to carry water to them at least twice a day otherwise they droop. Watering and feeding means they grow quickly and numerously, so I am already inundated. Made ratatouille, gave some to my son tonight, intend to give my neighbour some tomorrow - and still they grow. I also have two runner beans growing up a couple of evergreen trees so that now the trees look as though they are flowering. Whether I get the odd runner bean remains to be seen.
The forecast extreme heat never really materialised here today because there has been a nice cooling breeze all day. Lunch out was very pleasant - salmon goujons with salad and chips, followed by blackcurrant sorbet. Tess was very pleased to see me home, although before I went I took her very early this morning down the farm lane for a nice long walk and when I returned I took her for another walk round the estate here.
Well the Wimbledon tennis is over, the World Cup is over, the Tour de France is progressing well - now tomorrow the Golf begins. Before we know where we are it will be time for footie again!
