Rain at last

Thunderstorms all over London today. Phew! Saved me a lot of watering by hand since there is a hosepipe ban here. Everything is perking up and looking happy today, including myself.

Ate my first gooseberries today. Saw flies have eaten nearly all the leaves, this happened while I was on holiday, otherwise I would have sought them out and squished them.

First tomato eaten today! A small baby plum tomato "Harlequin" probably not as red as it might have been, but tasted divine. The first of many I hope.

Still working on a photo... be patient
