Early one morning.



With the crazy daytime temperatures we're experiencing, it's best to try to get things done as early as possible. This gives time to sleep in front of tedious Wimbledon matches in the afternoons.

Early morning temperatures are around 20 C, so it's perfect for working, dog walking, and even just breathing.

Billy and I set off at 6.30 am yesterday morning, and we encountered just one other equally sensible early morning dog walker. I imagine he was Dutch; he was about 8ft tall, and offered a "lovely weather for it" comment as we passed each other. Billy said hello to his small energetic dog, and we continued in opposite directions.

There was a slight breeze, the sky was still slightly hazy, and the Clover flowers, in front of the cottage, looked beautiful.

We saw a Hare, and two Deer, but Billy has yet to show any interest in chasing either.

I planted a few more winter greens, watered everything that looked thirsty, and despaired at my sick, and unproductive, Tomato plants. I'm now off to do a little mowing, before I have a quick swim; then lunch.

pm: More swimming (water 29 C), watched a bit of the Tour's first day.

p.s. I also managed to fit-in a flying visit to market in the early morning. I asked one stall holder if her Tomatoes were grown 'outdoors'. She said that they will be in about two weeks time, so if mine completely fail, I'll have a good alternative source.

    1. It looks beautiful at the moment. Last year it was filled with Sunflowers.

    2. I was wondering if it was the Sunflower field.

  2. I'm always being taken for Dutch. Maybe it was me ;-)

    1. Why are they all so TALL. You can spot them a mile off. And they all speak perfect English too!

  3. Our tomato plants are doing well but I'm not too sure whether they will turn red before Xmas. Do you want any courgettes?

    1. It's odd, either side of the Tomatoes my courgettes and Aubergines are doing really well; as are most other plants. There must be some nasty Tomato plant attacking disease in the soil. This is the third year running.

    1. It's a field of Clover for the Cows. The Cows are Blonde d'Aquitaine (our local variety) and will soon be munching away at this nutritious crop. It's lovely to see them out front.

  5. I just read a report on the first day of Le Tour. It said there were 29,000 security personnel on duty in Brussels. Today's stage is also in Brussels. So the 29,000 again maybe. Eddie Mercx in whose honour all this is must be delighted.

    1. They adore Merckx; and rightly so. The commentators were very discreet about the Waterloo monument!

    2. I looked up all of this and I wondered about why were the commentators discreet ? I don't follow the Le Tour.

  6. Rain and gardens are never ever in complete unity are they?

    1. That's certainly so here! No rain for weeks.

  7. Don't be fooled if the walker was wearing wooden clogs. French peasants wear them too. He might have been a spy disguised as either a Dutchman or a Frenchman.

    1. I was going by height. Anyone over 7 ft 6 ins I presume to be a Cloggie.

  8. With the ability to watch any and every Wimbledon match I have to say that I have yet to watch any match that was tedious this year.

    1. I like my Tennis in very small amounts; a bit like The Tour, which I watch for the final 10 mins of each stage.

  9. Have you or a close neighbour ever suffered from potato blight? I've read somewhere that it can spread to tomatoes, and, of course, once in the soil, it hangs about.

    1. This is very similar to Potato Blight, so it could well be that. I'm sure it's something in the soil. I shall be growing my Toms elsewhere next year!
