It rained!!!!

1st August brought us the first rain in over 7 weeks!!!

It has been a really lovely day and the garden is looking a little more refreshed for it.

The grapes are swelling a little and turning purple.In another few weeks they will be ready for picking for the wine.
The crop this year is larger than last though because of the lack of rain not as full and juicy so we are unsure if we will top the 120 litres we made last year.

Other things too are enjoying the rain.The courgettes are still flowering and producing and the melons are still holding on.....

More rain is forecast this week ahead ...lets hope we get some!
