I've had a really busy few days. On Saturday, despite the searing heat, my beloved other half decided we must, absolutely must, get up to the allotment and start picking stuff before the birds, rabbits and other assorted livestock help themselves to it. He was right, of course. After a slow start, everything is flourishing.
I picked 3lb of redcurrants and blackcurrants and have turned them into jelly. We also harvested the first of the broad beans, some courgettes, potatoes, peas and garlic, which have variously been eaten, frozen or otherwise stored. Add to this the continuing crops of carrots, strawberries, rhubarb, gooseberries, herbs and lettuce at home and I'm starting to feel like Barbara Good!
Kettering Camerata on Sunday, which went very well - enhanced in no small part by the addition of a French accordion-player. (Well, actually he's Latvian, but he played French music in keeping with the theme of the day, so I think we got away with it - and hey, we're all Europeans.)
I've also been really busy with work, but sadly not had time for any original writing. Must try harder.
