We’re home again after three weeks away. We’d planned just a one-week break but had to leave unexpectedly a fortnight earlier because of a sudden death in the family, so after a sad time it’s very cheering to come home to a wonderful harvest of aubergines, peppers and tomatoes, thanks to our neighbour who watered the garden for us. We’ve got a busy weekend ahead now making tomato puree to store for the winter because the Roma tomatoes are just waiting to be picked.

  1. >We also have great neighbours, I sometimes wonder what I would do without mine! I am making masses of Ratatouille with the surplus tomatoes, peppers and Aubergines. I have to add that this year there are a few beans going into it as well:-)Would you like some plums? Four trees laden are starting to get the better of me.Great blog, I will be back. Diane

  2. >Your photos of the seaside in Wales in summer took me straight back to my childhood holidays … I can just see, smell and hear the sea front. I was not unhappy there but I so much prefer my life here now. Sorry to hear of your bereavement – it is the most frequent reason for our going back to UK and always a sad experience on many fronts. But welcome back to the glorious harvest and richness in your garden!Y
