I've taken advantage of all the ripe tomatoes in our friends' greenhouse (with their permission, of course!) They're away on holiday and I'm watering their plants in a 40ft polytunnel.
So we now have several jars of tomato and red onion chutney...the chillis came in useful for this. Should be delicious with some crackers and strong cheese.

The scent of lavender is filling my sewing room (aka our spare bedroom)...and it's so relaxing. Good job there's no bed in there now, otherwise I'd be having a siesta!

The other main change is in the veg plot. There are loads of peas and French beans to pick...sonny obviously ignored my pleas to come around and help himself to some.
And the sweet peas were not really flowering before we went, but now there's a profusion; they're one of those flowers that do need picking all the time.
Their scent is unmistakeable...so sweet!
