Village Sign

There are times when our coastal breezes can be a bit annoying but on Saturday, the hottest day of the year so far, they were most welcome. While other parts of the UK sizzled, the conditions here on the coast were far more comfortable. Buying meats for the barbeque on Friday was definitely the right thing and while Peter barbequed on both Saturday and Sunday evenings; I cooked our home grown vegetables in the kitchen. I am putting our excess raspberries in the freezer and once the canes have stopped producing, I will make jam. Also going in the freezer are broad beans and with the first two rows finished, Peter has pulled up the plants, composted them and sown French beans as a follow on crop. Earlier sowings of French beans have had mixed results with one area pushing up ‘blind’ seedlings, while another has plants in flower. Yesterday was quite windy but the windbreak, Peter erected a couple of weeks ago, has protected most of the plants and the runner beans have only suffered minimal leaf damage.
