Oh what a scorcher. I am so glad I decided to get up early and work in the cool. I have made a start on the nettles in the butterfly garden, leaving them on the path for the caterpillers of the seven butterflies who lay their eggs on them. Sweetcorn sown into 9cm pots . and everything that was desperate for a drink watered. Now i have watered myself and now plant to fill up the green wheeliebin which has just been emptied. I think I will read a book outside in the afternoon and take up the heavy work in the evening when it will be cooler, after i have gorged myself on strawberries picked this morning. There was a big hooray from me when I inspected the conservatory this morning and as both Snackbite and King of the North peppers which we are trialling for Mr. Fothergill have flowers and tiny fruits on.
