I know, I’ve totally dropped the ball on both the blog and the garden itself. School summer holidays are upon us, the Olympics are on, the weather can’t make its mind up and I feel distracted.
This turned up in the greenhouse – what is it!? I’ve never seen anything so big….is it a Queen Bee, because it is nearly 4cm long, I don’t think you get the feel of its scale from the photo. Thank goodness I didn’t come across it alive, that would have scared me!
I decided to give the last redcurrants to the birds today. I feel bad, they are a lovely crop and they look so beautiful and jewel like hanging delicately from their branches, but I have so much jelly left from last year and I just don’t have time to deal with them before we go away on holiday. Oh well. On which note, we’re off to Yorkshire for a while, I hope the garden survives as the crops are so late we haven’t really enjoyed eating the produce yet. Fingers crossed 🙂
