Finished the second pick of peppers, all skinned and boxed and frozen.Garden is producing a lot now, it was 44 yesterday at 2pm, and everywhere smells of hot figtrees - lovely ! New dog, Reeta, settling in. Constant fresh lettuce, buy six tiny ones at a time, plant along the wall so shaded. No mozzies at night and few flies daytimes.

Tragedy, dog took Necky, only Emma laying now. Small toms at last ripening, taste like peaches. Onions crated outside. Picking the large every day to freeze. Plenty of cucumber, toms and cue for Glorys lunch. Cuts from last weeks fall healing well, still lame on left foot.

Catch up report. Usual floods in Albufeira, the council must be morons.The weather has been normal, no frost so garden is very good this year, everything is early. One potato plant gave 12 goodsize potato, a record ! Bought new chicks, 2 brown. 2 black and Neckys eggs hatched out at the neighbours so have 2 more. They are laying like mad and no-one is sitting yet. Glory has hurt her tendon so no riding, my broken foot has healed, my arm still hurts. New dog from the Camera kennel, Reeta. Young, looks like a blonde collie, very energetic and should have called her kangaroo, never seen a dog leap so much. Will be drying potato, onion next month, tomato are 5 foot high and full, cues eating now, lots of tiny melon and aubergine. Alls well on the farm.

August now, best crop of onions ever, packed in shed. Tomato were rubbish. so many bugs. This year is cucumber year, next best is melons then aubergines that make tasty egyptian fried slices. Miracle hens still laying, all the neighbours have stopped. I am so pleased with them they now have a new pond under the pomegranit tree, to sit in on the hot afternoons. Drip fed by the leaky tap - - Have air conditioner, found it on Bangladesh article, they have no electric so make this cardboard and bottle thing, works lovely. Glory spends the afternoons in as its been over 40 outside. Alls well on the farm, well, all except me !

September 2017. A very different year, severe drought, hundreds of fires and higher temperatures than previous years. Freezer is full of this years harvest. Had to make tomato concentrate as smaller freezer. Ice cream sorbets were very good, grape, plum, goiaba, date and fig, all with banana. This week put in tomato, lettuce and cabbage and potato, which should be delicious for Xmas ! Hens still laying. Havent seen a blade of grass for ages - - Almonds in shell are one euro a kilo ( nut milk) Alls well on the farm.
