Well, we are always busy but at the moment it seems more so.
It has been hot and dry so watering every day. The tomatoes, in particular, have done really well and I have frozen a lot (just washed and put into bags and frozen. Later will be taken out have boiling water poured over them, the skin comes off easily before they are used in sauces, casseroles, soups etc. I have also given kilos to friends, neighbours and relations.
The peaches are doing well this year. A couple of years ago we had the tree (self sown) topped and only got a few peaches last year but they are fruiting well again. They are similar to a Golden Queen. Unfortunately, a lot have the Guava Bud Moth larva in them but I cut around that a stew them before freezing.
We have just bought a load of firewood from Grand-daughter's husband (a misunderstanding meant we ended up buying 4 cubic metres plus another cubic metre better for kindling). Yesterday we moved and stacked 3 cubic metres and did the remaining one this morning. Not bad for two octogenarians. Should have enough firewood for a couple of years as we already had quite a lot.
Still a few peaches left on the tree.
Spare bedroom turned into storage for peaches and tomatoes.
