Mowing the lawns

Drinking Tia Maria on ice until the sun came up. Awake at seven, could not get back to sleep, decided to get up and mow the lawns before it got too hot.

A very hot day, 30C. Highest temperature 33.7 in Suffolk.

Before nine, a cool breeze blowing.

By midday, too hot to garden. Nearly three hours in the garden. Mowing, hoeing, watering, fork compost heap, plant out a sweet peepr.

I have never tried growng pepper. An F1 hybrid. Usually I do not grow F1, the seeds are sterile, or do not grow true. I never save the seeds from peppers, let alone try growing from seeds. An F1 hybrid may be more suited to the climate. All they had in the greengrocer.

A soak in the bath.

On a hot day, hard work, followed by shower of a bath, remain cool for a couple of hours.

Stepping out into the garden like stepping into an oven.
