It's been a couple of weeks since my last post, but leaving aside the necessity to work for a living, the rest of my time has been spent weeding and picking fruit. I now have 4.5 bags of gooseberries in the freezer (and the scars on my arms to prove it!), which is probably arounds 15 pounds of fruit.
Now the rain has returned, another branch of my plum tree has suffered damage, though not as bad as last time, so this week will be spend dodging showers to get out in the vegetable plot. I'm hoping for a couple of dry days. Meanwhile my cat can continue to enjoy sitting on the doorstep among the flowers while I'm working hard.
