Got loads of green tomatoes which don't look like ripening.
And two marrows on my marrow plants. I grew them from the seed I saved from last year so well chuffed with those. I've got them supported on cardboard boxes which according to the writing originated from Greece - and I would imagine it's not much fun there either at the moment with their economic situation like it is. I saw a documentary not long ago about people my age, scrabbling through the garbage bins looking for something to eat. That is awful. We love to share our surplus veggies with anybody who hasn't got any. I read somebody's blog over in America where they were setting up food banks. People who'd got room in their gardens were planting an extra couple of rows of veggies to donate to the food bank and then it was distributed to anybody going through a hard time. I think this is a brilliant idea. I love planting and gardening and I wouldn't find it any trouble at all. My father-in-law used to sow an extra couple of rows of potatoes in his field and at harvest time, the local children came to help pick the potatoes - they didn't get paid in money but they had their share of potatoes from the extra rows and loads of laughs and fun while they were doing it.
The upside of all the rain is the abundance of fruit. The apple trees and currant bushes are loaded this year. I made a whole load of red currant jelly yesterday which even for me is pretty good.
Have a good weekend.
