Some people may think that i am out of the country. Not really, simply the modem was not working and having sent it to the company i got it back this morning. As you see it is working now.

It has been a great summer so far, temperature good and items like fruit and frlowers great. The roses are as good as ever. In the greenhouse, the tomatoes are doing well. I noticed one ripe yesterday. I have been enjoying the grapes for some time. Outside, no shortage of gooseberries and raspberries.

You really miss the computer when something goes wrong. Glad it's fixed now. Those grapes really look good!

Good harvest there, Dick. Envy you those tomatoes so early.

Well Peter, when the jam is made there will be plenty of sugar used. I don't concur with the people who were talking on radio this morning.

Heather, I agree about missing the computer when the modem is out of action. PCON got some sticks from me some years ago. They are an early variety.

Mary, the tomato seeds were sown in January. That explains why they are early.

That is a great harvest altogether Dick - well done!

We can't do without the computer nowadays. 

It hasn't been such a great Summer here though - temperatures have been low and a lot of days have been cloudy.

A big welcome back, Dick. Good to hear that your crops are doing well.

Great to see you back again Dick. I'm glad all is well both health wise and computer wise!! It's a real nuisance when the Internet is gone as we rely on it so much nowadays. Sounds like a bumper crop this year for you too. Great!
