Got home about´s a sad sight. My herb wheel is looking very sparce as many of the herbs have died (even the mint which I thought was indestructable!!!), the leaves on the trees are turning brown and falling, the fruit bushes look dead as do all the salad crops around the back!!!! It´s soul destroying to come back to this. Got to start all over again, but at least all the solar stuff is still here. The pool is a lovely shade of green again! It´s just been too hot!
On a good note...Paxo the turkey is getting his feathers back and is looking really healthy. The baby chicks are mainly cockerels and one is even crowing...2 weeks and they go in the freezer!!!! They have grown so much since we have been away.
And so the hard work begins again!
