Mid August

Where is August going??  I am sat here waiting for new guests to arrive.  The sunshine is streaming through the windows - but we've just had a little shower.  The garden has been producing really well, so I have made plum jam, piccallili, apple and marrow chutney, beetroots are wonderful, and the runner beans are now really meaning it....  The cucumbers have been so prolific that The Farmer has to eat at least one a day.  The courgettes keep trying to become marrows when my back is turned, hence the chutney...  I am now clearing the fruit cage - as new plans for next year.  Melplash Show on Thursday, and I have been making loads of apple cakes for the honey tent.  Its all go!
