Was going to the allotment but it has started to rain so here i am catching up on the laptop. No plans as yet for today. Shame the sun is not shining as Worthing has its Bird man competition this weekend.

I have a huge lavender in my back garden which is covered in bees. Its a bit near the washing line so have to be careful getting the washing in especially as im allergic to bee stings. So far no mishaps this year. Have only seen a few wasps and they are on the allotment.

After nearly killing myself yesterday turning over the compost bins dont think i will do too much as my back is awful. Had gone to allotment in the morning and having picked all the gooseberries my neigh bour said i could have the rest of his blackcurrants. Think i need to learn how to make jam i have so many.

Well done. Ive also had a good year with the currants, and as for the gooseberries will be making wine at the weekend. No-one can eat that many. Loads of raspberries aswell

What's the weather like in your area?
