The weather has been dry, sunny and for the most part hot here as it has for most of the UK which unfortunately has been great growing weather for the weeds so plenty of weeding has been undertaken...having said that it has been great for the crops too and i will soon be looking forward to more than just strawberries!!
Not that I'm complaining though, after recruiting a couple of helpers I got this lot...
So these actually filled my kitchen sink and there are now none left...I will let you know what I decided to do with them later in the week. Picking these with the help of the kids only took an hour...that of course was with a little bit of weeding thrown in too!!

The above photo actually isn't too bad, but.....

I gave my Son a power tool!! It's amazing how quickly they jump at the chance to help if they get to play with toys...having said that though after an hour the fun had gone out of it and it turned into hard work...I didn't mind though I'll take anything I can get!!
On top of all this weeding and strimming there has of course been work and the garden to contend with and then I have also managed to get to help with the bees too.
On the bee note, Jez gave me a whole jar of delicious honey and since then my Hubby and I have been taking a spoonful a day instead of the hay-fever medication you by over the counter. It has been wonderful and as it's natural it has got to 'bee' better for us!!
So I think that is where I am at for now, well more or less but I don't want to bore you all to sleep on such a glorious day...speaking of glorious days I was down the allotment last night until 10:30pm. I love going at this hour when the weather has been so hot and it is always so still at that time of the day.
Looks to be another scorcher today so I don't think I will be doing much on the allotment but that's okay...It will be nice to relax just for a little bit.
Okay, I really am going to leave you alone now...Have a great weekend all!!
