14 August 2014 - A dark and cloudy day

The weather forecast and the sky, for once, were in agreement.
We decided to rush to the plot, water the young plants in the shed 
and collect some vegetables.
We spent the session cooking and eating them while the rain pelted down.
We had a cucumber salad, sweetcorn and green bean minestrone soup.
Not many photos were taken.

7 August 2014 - Not a breeze

Getting ready to face the hill and the heat

More treasure hunting

Perhaps this 'Jogging' cucumber could do with more exercise

Our harvest for the day
