This is now the hot season – a good time for maintenance. There’s painting to be done; paths and steps to be checked for safety; cupboards to be emptied, cleaned and sorted; and the vegetable garden to be tended.
At the moment the lettuces are growing really well. The compost bin is filling rapidly. Spinach is regularly harvested for soups and as an addition to curry dishes.
It is also a time for checking and planning the different areas of the gardens and grounds.
