Catching up

I've not posted for over a week. We are suffering from an intermittent Internet connection at the moment which seems to mean that whenever I try to go online I can't! Of course because it is intermittent it is difficult to find out what is wrong so we are stuck with it for the time being while BT try to find out what is the matter.

We are all well and busy. The rain I was hoping for last week didn't materialise and the ground is dusty dry and regular watering is a must. We are predicted thunder storms later in the week so I hope this time they reach us, everything would grow better after a good soaking. The fruit bushes are doing well despite the lack of rain and I've finished picking the redcurrants and gooseberries and the early blackcurrants are just about ready.

I hope everybody is well. I am missing my blog reading and hope that this fault is rectified soon so that I can catch up with everybody.

Hope you can get on the computer soon! We are having British weather over here -- very unseasonably cool. I don't mind! i suppose hot weather would be better for the garden. Mine is finally growing nicely and we have a lovely purple pepper that gets a little bigger everyday. Had our very own salad last night too.

The rain has been scarce here too, but that's not really unusual.

Hope your summer is going well.
